Experimental: REACH Participant Course
This study will run twice a week over 8 weeks with 6 REACH sessions 8 optional walking program sessions. The optional walking program will be run by SportMedBC and may consist of one or more educational sessions (e.g., nutrition). Each REACH session introduces new topics, strength and balance activities and home practices which progressively build on each other. We will ask participants to provide feedback after each session, and in two to three 30 minutes recorded interviews (in-person or over the telephone) at the end of the study.
REACH is a lifestyle intervention program which aims to reduce sedentary behaviour, increase physical activity, and increase strength and balance. The REACH program is comprised of six sessions which include evidence-based education, behaviour change theory, and activity instruction. REACH also teaches goal setting techniques, mindfulness, and encourages active community engagement. In this study we are running the REACH program for women aged 55 and older alongside a supplementary optional walking program run by SportMedBC.
