This training guide will give program directors, administrators, and fitness leaders the tools they need to help frail elders and adults with special needs maintain or improve their level of functional fitness. Most older adults have special needs, and this guide will equip leaders to teach exercise to all older adults.

The last chapter of part II presents strategies for putting together an exercise program to accommodate the participants, which includes developing the program as participants’ skills improve.
