This ‘Prime Time for Older Adults’ pilot project aims to build on (from a clinical exercise physiology perspective) the existing skillset of fitness professionals in Laois so that they have the skills and knowledge to (i) implement and evaluate an evidence-based strength and conditioning intervention for older adults and (ii) teach older adults the skills and knowledge they need to empower them to increase their functional strength and fitness for activities of daily living and manage and improve clinical conditions they may have including arthritis, osteoporosis, sarcopenia, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. The overall goal of this project is to create more opportunities for older adults in Laois to be physically active under the supervision of skilled professionals that are equipped to deliver group physical activity sessions for this population, particularly in relation to the clinical conditions that often exist in this group.
