'Prime Time of Life', A 12-Week Home-Based Online Multimodal Exercise Training and Health Education Programme for Middle-Aged and Older Adults in Laois.
This is a 12-week pilot strength and fitness training intervention designed specifically for people aged 50 to 80 in Laois. The intervention involves two * 60 minute online group exercise sessions per week. During each exercise session, participants perform a warm up followed by a combination of strength, balance, flexibility, mobility and cardiovascular fitness exercises and finally a cool down. Participants do not need any equipment or much space to take part in these training sessions. Everyone is asked to perform the exercises to their own ability and desired level of intensity so that they are suitable for all fitness levels. All training sessions are delivered and monitored by trained professionals.
True Fitness were commissioned by Laois Sports Partnership to design and deliver this programme. This multimodal training study has received funding from the Government of Ireland’s Sláintecare Integration Fund under grant agreement number 21.
