Older adults fitness training

For both beginner and experienced instructors

Third Age Fitness is passionate about training and educating people who work with older adults. Too often we see older adults underestimated, either by themselves or by others around them, but we believe that with a little encouragement, and in the right environment, older adults can build and maintain their physical and mental well being to a level that will see them enjoy and participate in life to the fullest.

Our online courses are aimed at fitness professionals looking to work with older adults, or for those who interact with older adults in their workplace, such as council and fitness centre staff. So whether you just need PDPs/CECs for your registration, or you are looking to grow your understanding and communication skills with this age group, have a look at our courses and sign up today!
