I just read an article on education trends in the fitness business. Did you know there are 100 million baby boomers (over 50) that make up 30% of our population? The CDC stated 80% of seniors have one chronic medical condition, 50% have two or more.
Are you prepared to work with these issues like Joint replacements, heart disease, obesity, osteoporosis, muscle loss etc?
I participated in a senior fitness class where half couldn’t lift their arms correctly without stressing their neck muscles, many couldn’t swing their legs or balance at the ballet barre and the rest couldn’t hold a small bridge in supine because their bun muscles weren’t strong enough.
These clients could flood your Pilates studio every day bringing in many new dollars if you know how to reach them. Ask yourself if you have the passion and patience in helping those with health challenges to create a better quality of life?
If the answer is yes, then you need to look for courses that teach you the tools you need for the Boomer Population.
My two courses Boomer-ilates and Beyond and Horizontal Rebounding (bone strengthening using the jump board) might be just what you are looking for.
I’m going to be 70 next year, I am a Boomer teaching Boomers and I live by what I teach. Call me for more information. 310-913-3333.
Tip of the Day: Your arms should hang from your back (scapula) not from your chest. Sit and Stand tall-Good Posture Becomes You.
