The FABS Training Programme has been developed by Move it or Lose it, collaborating partners with the Centre for Healthy Ageing Research at University of Birmingham. With our blended approach of online learning and practical training, we’ve made it as easy as possible to help you become a specialist exercise instructor for the over 60s.
FABS will enable you to:
- Understand the major changes associated with ageing and inactivity
- Understand how to support and motivate the older adult to adhere to physical activity
- Understand guidelines and training principles in relation to the older adult
- Be able to plan, deliver and evaluate exercise sessions for older adults including progressive training
Once you purchase the FABS Training Programme you will receive an email with your personal log in details to access the interactive online blended learning. Here you will be guided through each unit and assessed for competence as you go. You will also be shown, through video tutorial, each of the exercises in preparation for your practical assessment. This equates to 32 hours of guided learning. You will also be able to download the complete theory and practical training manuals for future reference.
This allows you to learn and practice in the convenience of your own home so when you attend the two day practical training you will be fully prepared. Here you will learn how to link the exercises and put them to music to create fun-filled routines. You will be continually assessed informally and formally to show competence in safe and accurate delivery, observation and adaptation, goal setting and motivational techniques.
