What is Tap & Clap Cardio?
Tap & Clap Cardio (TCC), developed by Lisa McLellan, is a cheerful and rhythmic chair aerobics exercise program designed to invigorate and inspire older, or more fragile seniors. Lisa uses this innovative approach to create simple, fun and effective exercise experiences that motivate seniors to move and feel good.
Implement fun and revitalizing Tap & Clap Cardio sessions into your existing programs to address the problems of sedentary lifestyles and negativity. TCC can be easily integrated into your community centers, senior residences and other senior group settings.
TCC the « magic little pill »
that lifts senior’s spirits and gets them moving safely!
This one day training will provide you with the skills and tools you need to lead Tap & Clap Cardio sessions.
You will leave feeling confident that you have something new, fun and effective which your senior (65+) clients will love. The certification includes a theory and practical component, a manual with pictures of the TCC movements, sequence suggestions and verbal cueing notes as well as music playlists, and health tips on different topics important for seniors.
This training is for you whether you give fitness classes to seniors, are an employee of a residence (recreation facilitator, health care worker, social worker, fitness instructor), physical rehabilitation technician, a volunteer involved in senior organizations and activities, a caregiver, or simply interested in becoming a certified Tap & Clap Cardio instructor.
