Webinar: The Bioenergetics of Aging and the Impact of Physical Activity on Outcomes

 

Summary

The process of aging reflects the body’s slow and gradual loss of the ability to generate energy. Cellular changes begin years before outward manifestations appear. Through preventive measures such as physical activity older adults can be empowered to proactively manage their aging trajectory leading to an improved quality of life, decreased health care utilization, and a readiness for end of life. Health care and fitness professionals have an opportunity to work together and intervene now to help impact the second half of life for all individuals.

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify the changes and challenges of aging and the impact of physical activity
  2. Describe the concept of frailty and impact on patient outcomes
  3. Describe innovative approaches for physical activity management of older adults
  4. Define Social Determinants of Health, exercise, and opportunities for community integration
