Strategies for Training the Frail and Pre-Frail Client

The oldest-old population is the fastest-growing age group in the U.S. making them a viable customer group for fitness facilities. However, they can be a challenging group to work with since adults over the age of 75 are more likely to have significant physical and functional limitation including being classified as either frail or pre-frail. In this session, we will describe what it means to be frail or pre-frail and discuss how to implement safe and effective evidence-based training strategies with these clients.


1 - Define the frailty syndrome and pre-frail state and list the criteria for each

2 - Discuss exercise training recommendations from published guidelines including emerging areas of research

3 - Detail specific exercise strategies for common challenges associated with training these clients
