    Leading exercise classes on a regular basis can become monotonous. But if you combine energetic music with an atmosphere of celebration, a traditional class can be transformed into an exciting event that feels more like entertainment than a workout. This webinar will present key differentials that can take an exercise class from “Okay” to “Hurray!”.  Even though HeartBeats Club is suitable for all fitness levels, Activity Professionals who work in Long Term Care Centres and Adult Day Programs will find this format particularly effective in addressing the unique needs of the frail client who is facing multiple chronic medical conditions.

    Learning objectives

    • 1)    Participants will identify the key components that distinguishes HeartBeats Club from other exercise programs.
    • 2)    Participants will learn the latest research on how music stimulates the brain and what makes it an effective tool for motivating and cueing exercise. They will apply this knowledge in choosing music that engages and enlivens their clients.
    • 3)    Participants will evaluate real life examples of HeartBeats Club in action and determine how these techniques can benefit their clients.
