Become an Ageless Grace Instructor

As Ageless Grace Instructors, we are helping our clients to stay functionally physically fit, and we are increasing their cognitive reserve at the same time. “Brain-training” and cognitive stimulation are becoming mainstream, bringing with it ripe opportunities for slowing cognitive decline. Emerging evidence is showing promise for cognitively-enhanced physical activity over cognitive stimulation via brain games i.e. word puzzles and sudoku.

Discover simple yet powerful techniques for combining exercise with cognitive stimulus simultaneously, and begin to see cognition as an acute variable, as normal as direction, load and speed. Learn the difference between simultaneous, consecutive, and isolated cognitive-physical training, and how best to program brain-health strategies for yourself and your clients.

Anyone of any age or ability can be certified to instruct the programme and inspire others to practice this cutting-edge brain elasticity programme. Intentionally nourishing the mind-body connection on a daily basis can help improve health and well-being, reduce stress, keep the brain agile and the body responsive. When body, mind, spirit and emotions are in balance, health and well-being follow. Ageless Grace offers something for each of these dimensions

Fitness Teachers and Personal Trainers Supplement Your Income

“The love, compassion and PASSION of those in the fitness field is powerful — and valuable.  And it is important, I feel, for fitness teachers and educators to receive equal value for the life-enhancing work they are doing in the world.  So we need to talk about MONEY, the 5-letter word that scares most of us, since we (thankfully) tend to come from our hearts and not from our heads.

My personal experience and passion for the health and wellness field have even given me the tools to create a worldwide brain-body fitness program. Based on the cutting-edge science of neuroplasticity, Ageless Grace activates all 5 functions of the brain and addresses all 21 physical skills necessary for optimal function.  It’s not only simple to practice — it’s simple to teach.  My marketing skills have helped to launch it throughout the USA and in 11 countries around the globe so far, including Africa.

You want to reach other markets than those you are reaching now — other age groups, and those with other interests and needs, in order to expand your fitness business.

Needless to say, I am an advocate of Ageless Grace, which was specifically designed to focus on baby boomers (the largest population in the world) and Ageless Grace for KIDZ! — the next largest population in the world. From a marketing point of view, your possible reach into these markets is almost unlimited — and seniors and children exist in almost every size city in the world in great abundance.

The Ageless Grace program was also designed so that anyone can simply and easily teach it regardless of your fitness background — and while healthy adults and children want to practice brain fitness for preventative measures, anyone can practice it for developmental or restorative reasons as well (including special populations like those with joint replacements, dementia, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, MS, autism, stroke and cancer survivors, ADD and ADHD, etc.) — which makes it possible to market it to many different audiences.

The biggest difference between Ageless Grace and other fitness programs is that Ageless Grace is meant to both exercise the body and stimulate the brain. Research now supports that we must combine the two for optimal lifelong function and graceful aging. And that we must continue to practice movements we are unfamiliar with in order to create new neural pathways.
There are over 2000 Ageless Grace instructors worldwide! “I am thrilled that Ageless Grace has taken off so rapidly and that people are benefitting from the program in Africa, Asia, Australia, and beyond!” said Denise Medved. “99% of the Educators are women and they love teaching Ageless Grace because they experience the benefits for themselves as they help other people. I often hear that they are happier and more engaged in their communities than before they taught Ageless Grace. ”
It’s not surprising that the Instructors feel happier after teaching their classes. Ageless Grace, through the maintenance, restoration and development of our neural pathways, (the message highways between the body and brain), stimulates the same pathways we used as children. People become more playful, energetic, and creative once they begin to practice and teach

Ageless Grace because they are accessing parts of their brain that they used from the time they were born until they were about 18-21 years of age.
Some of the Instructors and Trainers teach Ageless Grace as a career, while others teach to supplement their income. Not only are women changing the model of aging around the world, but they are being paid well to do it!

TESTIMONIALS FROM CERTIFIED INSTRUCTORS

LIZ GILCHRIST

“I have grown the Ageless Grace name and awareness of the benefits that this wellness program offers extensively in my area, (Pringle Bay, Betty’s Bay and surrounding areas)
I have continuous positive feedback from various people who regularly attend my classes such as :-
An elderly woman who had a foot operation 2 years ago had been experiencing pain and discomfort in that area since October last year and was about to consult with a doctor feeling it was a hopeless case, since she started with Ageless Grace classes in November the pain and discomfort has disappeared completely !!

A woman who started my classes in December last year had just completed a course of radium treatments for cancer, she also has undergone three back operations so her range of movement was very limited. She has been attending classes twice a week and now has full range of movement in both legs, ankles, feet and arms. She has also developed a positive attitude and it’s so rewarding to see her smile. Her husband approached me thanking me for regaining her purpose, reason and the will to live. They have found more cancer and she will be starting treatment soon so this will be an ongoing mission of mine to maintain her positive state of mind and as much exercise as she is capable of.

Also very rewarding to dance and sing with the Dimentia patients at the Gerimed section of Kogel Park . I hadn’t been there for two weeks over the festive period and when I arrived for a session last Tuesday one of the patients recognised me, I was greeted with a huge smile, open arms and she started singing as best she could !!! How amazing she remembered. These sessions are as rewarding as they are emotionally tiring.

I am teaching up to six classes a week now and more committed than ever to make a difference in peoples lives with this amazing program. Look forward to my recertification in July.

6 Hr Teachers Classroom Exercise Certification - Booking Form
Forever FUN Fitness For Children – Brain Health and physical fitness in a classroom setting
This Certification Course is directed at Teachers. For Teacher’s to use “brain breaks” through stimulation of neuroplasticity for children from age 4 + in a classroom setting..

Teacher’s Classroom Exercise Certification is based on consciously choosing to develop the brain and body through playful and imaginative physical movements designed to fire neurons and develop neural pathways for pre-schoolers to mid-teens. Exercises in the programme can be practiced by children in collaboration with their teacher. The exercises are done seated at their desks in the class room which stimulates and develops the five primary functions of the brain by doing unfamiliar movements, or creating new ways to do an activity that is already familiar to them. We use music and story-telling with no need for the teacher to learn any special choreography. The brain stimulating tools can be adapted to the curriculum, which also focus on primary physical skills for optimal function in the formative years such as joint mobility, balance, spinal flexibility, upper body strength, coordination, and the ability to respond, react and recover.

This programme includes those Teachers working with special populations, including those on the autism spectrum, with ADD or ADHD or with physical or mental limitations.
