Yes, there is absolutely a market for personal training with the senior population. Right now in our country, the baby-boomer generation is leaving the workforce and going into retirement, this means there is a greater need for trainers for this specific population than ever before. It is important to be well versed in the special needs of these clients and ACE has put together a comprehensive specialty certification just for this population.
