Re-introducing your active aging adult population to functional fitness
This is the fourth session from the CFES “Fitness Today: The New Normal” live streaming conference with Dr. Cody Sipe, PhD.

Dr. Cody Sipe, PhD, Associate Professor and Director of Clinical Research at Harding University; Co-Founder, Vice President at Functional Aging Institute.
Cody is a recognized authority on training older adults with over 20 years of industry experience as an exercise specialist, trainer, gym owner and professor.
He is the co-founder of the Functional Aging Institute and the Functional Aging Specialist certification. Dr. Sipe currently services as an Associate Professor and Director of Clinical Research in a Doctoral Physical Therapy program.
One of the topics of interest to both new and more experienced fitness instructors and PTs is how to re-introduce and progressively advance their active aging and “at risk” participants into their exercise routines while ensuring re-entry is advanced safely to avoid injury and pain and at the same time build their confidence again.
Where do you start? What should you avoid? What red flags should you look for? Should you reassess them? In this session we will demystify the “return to activity” process for older individuals and layout a sensible plan so that your protocols are both safe and effective for clients with varying abilities and conditions. We will also address some potential areas of concern to be mindful of and to monitor over the first few weeks. Because of Cody’s experience working with active aging adults and great teaching style, this is a great workshop for everyone.
