Total Barre™ Endurance with Music™, 60+
Research shows that older adults can benefit greatly by exercising with music as it improves learning and memory, builds self-esteem, reduces stress and increases social interaction. Ideal for less mobile, active adult clients, this workshop, developed by the Merrithew Health & Fitness™ team, follows the class template in the Foundation Course while incorporating the appropriate biomechanical principles to help instructors cue, motivate and modify safely for the active aging market. Instructors will leave this workshop with two 30-minute programs to help their clients increase flexibility, balance and postural stability. A recommended play list of music is provided, as well as suggested beats per minute for each segment, so you can build on this and select your own music to create theme-based classes.
