ALL SPECIAL POPULATIONS COURSES
What are special populations fitness courses?
Working with a number of different individuals you’ll notice that no one has exactly the same fitness needs. However, in most cases, it’s entirely possible to give them a similar fitness workout when they have similar health conditions and goals.
People who have unique medical conditions – such as musculoskeletal disorders or previous injuries that haven’t been rehabbed properly – can’t have the same treatment. They will risk injuring themselves again and not be able to work out owing to the pain if they are forced to exercise the way that everyone else does. It explains the need for certified fitness instructors who specialise in training special groups (people with chronic ailments or musculoskeletal complications).
