046: Dr. Dan Ritchie – Targeting an Underserved Aging Population in Personal Fitness


Joining us today is Dr. Dan Ritchie. Dan is the co-founder of the Functional Aging Institute, author of the bestselling book, Never Grow Old, and was the Personal Fitness Professional’s “Personal Trainer of the Year”, in 2014. Dan’s primary business focus is the overall health and fitness of the baby boomer generation and older, both in the United States and abroad. Dan and I discuss the demand that the older portion of the population has for personal training. Dan also shares how his organization has introduced a certified educational program to teach people to become personal trainers that specialize in serving the senior population.

All of that and more on today’s episode of The Six Figure Side Gig.
