Aging & Health

The launch of our Active Aging Certificate program (AAC) is in response to the statistics highlighting that the over 50’s are making up the fastest-growing age group in Canada. With this trend expected to continue for the next several decades, we realize that response to exercise is not age-dependent, it’s mind-dependent. This means that at any age or fitness level someone can respond positively to exercise and nutrition and gain benefits. Our new Active Aging Certification Certificate will cover a wide variety of topics related to aging and the very broad spectrum of clients/class participants.
