Regular physical activity (PA) is of central importance for healthy aging and has a well-known impact on helping older adults maintain their cognitive and physical health. Thus, we aimed to compare the effectiveness of two physical activity interventions primarily conducted at home (print-based or web-based vs. web-based plus the use of an activity...
Even though physical activity is an important aspect of health, lack of time or motivation impede people from working out regularly. One type of training program that is both efficient and motivating is functional interval-type outdoor training. To evaluate this, our study had 81 participants complete a battery of physical performance tests (increm...
Regular physical activity (PA) is associated with health and well-being. Recent findings show that PA tracking using technological devices can enhance PA behavior. Consumer devices can track many different parameters affecting PA (e.g., number of steps, distance, and heart rate). However, it remains unclear what factors affect the usage of such dev...
The first part of a currently running bigger study about the effect of functional outdoor HIIT Training and the benefit of additional wearable application.
Comparison two devices for evaluationg jumping performance
Although practical guidelines refer to core stability as a necessity for agility performance, it is not explicitly considered a prerequisite for agility performance development. Therefore, we assume an essential role of the core regarding the development of agility performance.
Do wearables increase the possible results of functional outdoor group fitness trainings?
Results of this subproject are of central use for preventing frailty and institutionalization of older adults, as well as for promoting well-being and prevalence of physical activity. Not only older adults will benefit from the results, but also their social network, professionals working with older adults, and policy makers.
