CPD Courses by Jonathan Ross
Alzheimer's Disease Fitness Specialist
The Alzheimer’s Disease Fitness Specialist Course blends current science with common sense to present cutting-edge ideas to optimise the impact that fitness can have in the lives of those you serve who are concerned about or diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, the most common form of dementia. Students will gain understanding of brain health and dementia at a level appropriate for a fitness professional. Develop an understanding of how to coach clients in the appropriate lifestyle factors most relevant to brain health and brain disease. In particular, the essential nature of creating a sense of enjoyment around healthy behaviours is emphasised. Gain comfort with integrating cognitive challenge elements and social connection elements seamlessly into workout plans, including cardiovascular and strength training in both one-on-one and group formats. Develop the confidence to implement the techniques equally well for those individuals directly and openly seeking brain health improvements as well as those not actively seeking it but who may benefit from an optimised brain fitness approach.
