PHOENIX, May 16, 2023 (Newswire.com) - The International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA), a world leader in the personal training certification industry, is proud to announce the launch of its Functional Aging Institute (FAI) courses and CEUs - now available at issaonline.com

Fitness pros and instructors can now take advantage of several specializations and CEUs to help older adults gain the strength and the fitness needed to achieve and maintain maximum mobility and physical function.
"The fitness landscape has shifted over the past two years and what's driving individuals and older adults to exercise is no longer simply a desire to lose weight, it's an aspiration to live a long and healthy life - to improve their healthspan and lifespan. FAI's unique Functional Aging Training Model is designed to do just that, and ISSA is thrilled to bring this offering to fitness pros," said Craig Bradley, Chief Growth Officer for ISSA.
Specializations include Functional Aging Specialist Certification, Functional Aging Group Exercise Specialist, Especialista en Envejecimiento Funcional, Tai Chi Basic Certification and Barefoot Training Specialist. There are also 13 CEUs available, targeted toward specific conditions and challenges that mature adults face.
