Age-appropriate exercises gain ground in 2011

Health clubs, aware that the fitness needs of boomers, people in their 30s and 40s and youths differ, will be offering more age-appropriate workouts in the new year.

Group exercise classes, both traditional and novel, will continue their upswing in 2011, as will personal training, sports-specific workouts and wellness programing, according to IHRSA (International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association), the global fitness trade organization.
