As the 50+ population grows and ages, there is a significant increase in obesity, chronic disease and medical conditions. A Boomer client may face joint replacement(s), arthritis, cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis, Parkinson’s, or Alzheimer’s. Often, they are dealing with 2 or more of these medical conditions.
Regular physical activity and proper nutrition are accepted strategies to promote and preserve health. There is a huge opportunity for well-educated fitness and allied healthcare professionals to serve as pivotal players in our nation’s healthcare system.
Continuing education in the fitness and wellness industry is important, and professionals working with the medical conditions, chronic disease and seniors must have a higher level of knowledge and skill.
MedFit Classroom offers online learning for fitness and allied health professionals; you’ll find education to stay current on prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation for chronic disease, women’s health, the aging population (and more!) through exercise and nutrition.

MedFit Classroom was created by the MedFit Education Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization founded to elevate the quality and amount of available education for fitness & allied healthcare professionals to learn how to best work with our aging population and those with medical conditions or chronic disease.
