Apart from the various certifications there are a list of books one can read to get more in depth knowledge on how to plan exercise programs for special population.
Also, as we saw that there are institutes which have a very strict criteria for special population certifications. Most people around the world won’t be able to fulfill that. But thankfully there are books available by the same institutes online, which you can buy and use it as a great resource.
Here are my top recommendations:
The book discusses the benefits of exercise for clients with special conditions and the exercise-related challenges they often face, as well as the importance of safe and effective health and fitness assessments for these clients. With an emphasis on published research, NSCA’s Essentials of Training Special Populations reviews the pathology and pathophysiology of numerous conditions and disorders, including the known effects of exercise on those conditions and disorders. Each chapter includes tables that provide exercise recommendations for specific conditions, complete with training modifications, precautions, and contraindications. Also included are case studies with practical examples of the application of these population-specific recommendations, as well as a summary of the commonly prescribed medications and their potential effects on exercise responses and adaptations.
The critical element that distinguishes ACSM’s Exercise Management for Persons With Chronic Diseases and Disabilities is its unifying mission to incorporate physical activity and exercise in both disease treatment and prevention. Its emphasis on assisting people with multiple conditions, which is ever present in health care today, moves beyond primary and secondary prevention to focus on how patients and clients can be kept physically active and functionally fit.
This text focuses on building appropriate exercise programs, physiological changes associated with various conditions, important precautions during exercise, outcome expectations, and basic nutritional considerations for various populations who frequently seek the services of a health and fitness professional. This book will serve as a comprehensive course text for students enrolled in personal training programs and students pursuing health/fitness professional degrees.
