Description The quantity of human life has been increased, it is now time to focus on increasing the "quality" of those added years. More than 80% of older adults in the United States suffer from at least one chronic disease. Physical activity has been shown to decrease the incidence of many chronic diseases, yet the majority of older adults remain sedentary. Social Cognitive Theory (SCT) can be used to help exercise leaders to create exercise programs tailored to meet the specific needs of older adult exercisers. The purpose of this project is to research and analyze exercise programs for older adults, and present resources which are available to promote exercise as an intervention or prevention to chronic diseases.
