Interested in having your own Geri-Fit Instructor Certification? Let our Master Trainers travel to you to conduct this one-day, eight hour accredited certification course. We travel to any city in the United States.

Strength Training for Seniors will provide your instructors with exceptional knowledge for leading safe and effective strength training classes. Upon completion of the one day course, your instructors will be ready to teach the Geri-Fit evidence-based health promotion / chronic disease support program at any of your licensed sites. 

We will provide one Master Trainer to train 4-15 instructors. Two Master Trainers will be required for groups of 16-25 instructors.  

Please book your training session directly by calling the Geri-Fit corporate office at 1-888-437-4348 x3.     

Please note:  online pre-study is required before attending the one-day workshop. Attendees must devote six hours of prep time for reading the Geri-Fit training manual, watching a few videos, and practicing the strength training exercises and stretches. A Practical Examination and a Written Examination will be required in order for the instructors to receive their Geri-Fit National Instructor Certificate.  If the manual is read and the videos are watched, they'll have no problem passing.  

Our next tour date is Wednesday August 29, 2018 in Wilkes-Barre, PA.  To register for the course, click here. This course is being provided by courtesy of Luzerne-Wyoming Area Agency on Aging.



* Currently approved by ACE, NCCAP, and CDSS.  If you are certified through another national certification organization, you can petition to have this training apply towards any re-certification requirements.
