Ageless Intensity Online CE Exam With Print Book

$138.95 CAD


Product Format
    This package includes the following:
    • Ageless Intensity book
    • Online continuing education exam
    In Ageless Intensity, fitness expert Pete McCall provides straightforward science-based information on how the same high-intensity exercise that provides a number of health benefits—from increased lean muscle mass to burning fat to reduced heart rate—can also influence human physiology in a way that can reduce the biological effects of time. Learn about the impacts of aging on the body and how to push your clients to their limits while doing it safely, lowering their risk of injury, and building in the needed recovery for a body that may be starting to show signs of aging.

    You'll gain practical knowledge on the importance of strength and power, mobility work, and recovery as the keys to boosting efforts to build and maintain muscle, burn calories, and help joints stay mobile as the body ages. The exercises included are designed to be challenging and deliver tangible benefits to middle-aged and older adults. Save time with the predesigned workouts or customize a complete workout plan to maximize results and combat the effects of aging.

    Reaching the “over-the-hill” milestone doesn’t mean your clients need to slow down. Ageless Intensity is your guide to working with adults over 40 who want to maintain their fitness with high-intensity exercise and workouts to remain active, stay in shape, and enjoy their favorite activities for the rest of their lives.

    After reading the book, certified professionals can take the companion CE exam to earn continuing education credits.
