Nearly 77 million Americans, according to the US Census Bureau, are now entering their fifties or older and facing the physical challenges that come with aging. Often identified as Baby Boomers, this group more than any generation before them, are focused on fitness and health. They also have the time and financial freedom to afford health and fitness products and services. In fact, Boomers represent the largest and fastest growing segment of the fitness market and their expenditures are expected to reach more than $13 TRILLION in the next decade! Add to this a shortage of health and fitness professionals qualified to meet their unique needs and you have an incredible opportunity as a fitness professional if you choose to work with this population!
The SrFit™ Mature Fitness course provides advanced training for experienced, certified health and fitness professionals who wish to safely and effectively work with active agers. With this course, you will gain an understanding of how the aging process affects all the systems of the body, identify dietary changes that may be needed; and develop effective training strategies to improve flexibility, endurance, strength and optimal function in your mature clients. You will learn how to individualize a training regimen that fits the physiological capabilities of mature adults, including those who are very frail and cancer survivors. Information from respected experts in the field such as Wayne Westcott, Jessie Jones, Roberta Rikkli, Vivian Heyward and Debra Rose will be presented, along with how to learn more from these experts. In addition, with the updated third edition textbook you will have at your fingertips—by way of direct links within the textbook and also through a virtual appendices on the AAHF website that you can access anytime from anywhere–several hundred pages of informational booklets, client handouts and educational pages to order (free!) or to download and print in both English and Spanish from the National Institute on Aging (NIA), which is part of the National institutes of Health (NIH). The NIA also offers free presentation toolkits that include PowerPoint presentations, video content and handouts for you to create expert presentations on the topics of brain health as you age and talking to your doctor.
Updated third edition just released!
Certified health and fitness professionals holding more than one certification may obtain CECs/CEUS for all approved certification organizations (see list above) for which they need continuing education at no additional cost.
Overall objective of the SrFit program: To instruct already certified and experienced fitness professionals so they are able to build upon their existing knowledge and skill to safely and effectively work with the ever-growing senior population, and more specifically teach the trainer to:
Learn and appreciate how the aging process impacts the organ systems, as well as understand the risk factors associated with chronic diseases.
Identify dietary changes that may be needed as a result of aging, and also recognize how diet is related to the different chronic diseases that become more apparent as people grow older.
Gain knowledge of safe and effective training techniques for the older adult, including guidelines specific to older adult flexibility, endurance and strength training.
Be aware of and be capable of conducting comprehensive senior health assessment and fitness testing procedures.
Understand chronic diseases and be able to design and modify programs for clients with specific chronic diseases.
Identify with what motivates the older adult and discover how to create an age friendly environment.
Become skilled at finding and appealing to senior clients, in addition to discovering ways to build your credibility and establish yourself as an expert in the field of senior fitness.

What People Are Saying About SrFit™
The book is very easy to read and it is packed with useful information, especially updated Internet resource center. The author did a great job of explaining medical terms in lay person’s language. I am sure professionals in senior fitness will buy this book to add to their library.

My name is Richard Barry. I am 69 years old. I have been a certified personal trainer since 2001. Because of my age and physical appearance, I was approached the owner/trainer of my local gym to help with the seniors in his gym. I was only willing to help if I could receive more training about seniors and how to help them. I realize how much more informed I am using the SrFit program. The ability to take the SrFit program on my computer is a great benefit to me because I am hearing impaired and find classes difficult. Taking the test on line is very easy to do and I got my results immediately. I am very pleased with this program and recommend it to everyone.
Thank you for the great program.

Tammy Petersen’s SrFit program manual provides readers with a solid resource on older adult exercise training that nicely blends scientific research with practical application. The SrFit manual is user-friendly and will appeal to both novice and seasoned health and fitness professionals. This manual will be a welcomed addition to the library of any individual working in the specialty area of senior fitness.

Thank you for the incredibly informative SrFit text that you created for fitness professionals. I have a degree in exercise science and am a certified athletic trainer. Although I have a good knowledge of biomechanics, physiology and exercise, your text and comprehensive DVD study guide has provided me with information specific to the senior population. My personal training company and all of our trainers use the text on a daily basis! Again, thank you.

As an ACE-certified personal trainer and a lifestyle and weight management consultant, I find the ‘SrFit’ manual and workshops essential in the career path development of the personal trainer. Tammy Petersen has developed a fully rounded program that educates and prepares personal trainers to work safely within the realm of senior fitness. The manual is a great tool for every trainer, whether they specialize in senior fitness or simply want to increase their knowledge base of special populations.

The SrFit Program is a great program for anyone who will be working with the senior population. It provides excellent information about the aging process and concerns when working with this population. I would recommend this program to anyone who is personal training or working as a group instructor with older adults.
Jeff Fellure MS, CSCS, PES

The SrFit Program is quite simply the preeminent course for training seniors. While many may attempt to address the importance of getting the growing senior population active and fit, Tammy is doing something about it. She is training a new generation of fitness professionals on the importance and intricacies of senior training.

The SrFit course is the most comprehensive, science based course on training older adults that I have seen. The information is provided in an easy to understand format and the supporting materials (DVDs, CD, workbook, website) reinforce the manual superbly. I highly recommend this program.
Heath Gay, BA, ACE CPT,
I am a 68+ senior and life-long exercise enthusiast. I have long believed that exercise is the best anti-ager, both for outward and inward youth. I love what Tammy says about ‘blaming the victim’ for the preventable ills of many seniors. The truth hurts! When a senior with COPD says, “I wish I hadn’t smoked,” or the man with three stents in his heart says, “I should have lost weight a long time ago,” it is truly a sorry fact. A healthy lifestyle needs to be a lifelong pursuit, and never stops until one draws the last breath. This senior fitness course surpasses any course in clinical exercise. It provides excellent research and ways for the trainer to deal with both active seniors and those with chronic illnesses. I especially liked the updated guidelines for training seniors over 65 or younger individuals with health challenges. We change as we age, and trainers must know the science behind it. This course is a must for any trainer.
Kathleen Gibbs BA, ACE CPT
I just finished taking my exam for the SrFit course I have been studying. I took this course specifically because I am a senior  and wanted to learn more specifically how I can take care of my own fitness needs. I also took it so I can competently advise the older people I encounter in my profession as a fitness consultant selling exercise equipment. Finally, I needed CEC’s for re-certification. I was able to successfully accomplish all three goals with this course. Additionally, I was able to do it in an affordable manner. This course was 1/3 the cost of a nearby national convention I have gone to in the past. And, I did it at home. All in all, it was a great decision to take this course. I also want to let you know that I PASSED!! Thank you so much.

SrFit is a valuable resource for personal trainers who work with active older adults and with individuals of any age suffering from chronic disease. Tammy Petersen has done a wonderful job constructing a concise manual that clearly describes the many changes associated with aging (and inactivity), guidelines for senior exercise prescription, and strategies to more effectively work with this rapidly growing segment of our society. SrFit should be a primary reference in the libraries of all fitness professionals.

Overall, I would recommend this book to any practitioner who treats seniors. I definitely think that chiropractors could get use out of it. Especially the exercise recommendations as they are simple to do, instruct and don’t require much in the way of equipment. The book is surprisingly detailed. It was almost like a text book with practical advice… advice that is actually up to date and accurate, which I find is rare.
Robert R. Schuck, DC FASA

I’ve been working with seniors for years. I found myself constantly being faced with new obstacles when working with this age group. I needed a program to help me organize my health assessment and to be a useful resource for my future clients. The SrFit program has done just that. The program is laid out in such a straightforward manner that you can easily absorb all of the information. The section on aging is fascinating. I often refer to the chapters on chronic diseases and exercise. I love the access to the video and frequently asked questions CD. Tammy Petersen has been quite helpful with a couple of questions I had about incorporating the program into my business. I highly recommend SrFit to anyone who is considering an exercise program for seniors.
John Sullivan, CPT

My number one complaint with most books concerning health and fitness; they’re typically boring as hell. Most people don’t want to read anything related to health and fitness, fearing they may slip into a boredom-induced coma. Thankfully, this is not one of them. Tammy does a great job merging fact and stat with easy and enjoyable. This is a book for which you can learn, reference and happily, attentively read.
Marty Tuley, author of Get Off Your Ass!
Tammy Petersen’s SrFit book is comprehensive, intelligent, useful and more importantly, easy to read, so the information can be applied. Too many textbooks try and impress the reader instead of making it an applicable tool of the trade. This book does it all for personal trainers to hit the ground running. Our senior college course has been well received with this book as its foundation.

As a person who has spent the past thirty years in the fitness industry, I applaud Tammy Petersen for establishing a comprehensive, relevant and much needed resource for working with the senior population. Unfortunately, most current training programs only graze over information when dealing with seniors. Tammy’s insights, research and training protocols offer safe and effective tools for working with this specific group of individuals. Any fitness professional who works with mature adults, owes it to themselves as well as their clients to take advantage of this educational resource.
Phil Wescott B.S.
Personal Training Director

Like her first book on senior exercise, Functionally Fit™, Tammy Petersen has done a masterful job presenting very important fitness information for older men and women in a very interesting and understandable format. She addresses key aspects of the aging process and our best anecdotal, sensible strength, endurance and flexibility exercise. From a practical perspective, her exercise selection is excellent, and her training recommendations are safe, effective and time-efficient, thereby enhancing the probability of successful program participation on the part of senior men and women. While Ms. Petersen’s book stands by itself as a comprehensive text, she identifies and provides access to additional resources that are highly relevant, and which should be reviewed thoroughly for even greater understanding of senior fitness and lifestyle concerns. Let the easy-to-read writing style enhance your knowledge of senior fitness in a most enjoyable and employable manner. Applying these materials to senior programs should make a remarkable improvement in the training outcomes.

I felt like some of the material in the course was dated. To be honest, the first chapter depressed me so much that I put the course aside for a few weeks. The pictures in the book looked like "seniors" in their late 70's -80's. Describing a senior as someone 55+ further depressed me, as I am 61.

I have already applied many principles from this course into my training. I have used the balance exercises and many suggestions for strength training. I have improved in my abilities as a trainer for cueing breathing, mobility, range of motion, and posture. I have used some of these principles on other adults as well. I have used the research knowledge gained from the DVDs of Wayne Westcott to "wow" people and motivate them to strive for similar results.||I loved the course. I don't normally enjoying watching DVD's so I wasn't looking forward to watching them, but I really gained a lot of valuable information for my work with seniors. I was impressed with the level of research. I always use research to back up my intentions so that I have real life rationale.||I heard about this course through Infofit in Vancouver. There were really helpful in directing me to this course for working with senior adults. |
