Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to test feasibility for the delivery and perceptions of a lifestyle model for middle-aged and older adults by involving participants in its development. The goal of the program is to reduce sedentary behaviour, increase physical activity, and increase strength and balance. An optional walking program will be run in parallel to emphasize the importance of moving more. Participants will be asked to fill out questionnaires on course delivery, content and effect throughout the program and 2-3 recorded interviews throughout the study. We will collect measurements of physical performance before and after the program.

Detailed Description:
This study aims to describe the delivery of a lifestyle model for older adults. Return to Everyday Activities in the Community and Home (REACH) is a health promotion program aimed at middle-aged and older adults. The goal of REACH is 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. We will gather pre- and post-intervention measures of program perceptions, delivery psychological variables and physical performance outcomes. We will also collect participant feedback about course delivery, content and effect throughout the program. This study will allow us to describe the delivery strategies of REACH and involve the participants in the development of the REACH program. The optional walking program will emphasize the importance of increasing daily physical activity.

Arm Intervention/treatment
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.
Behavioral: REACH
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.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. REACH session feedback questionnaire [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    A questionnaire will be administered following each REACH session to address participant's feedback regarding their experiences in each session

  2. REACH program participant interviews [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    Individuals interviews will be administered at the beginning, middle, and end of the REACH program to acquire further feedback on participant experience in the program as a whole.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Physical Activity Identity [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    A questionnaire will be administered at the beginning and end of the REACH sessions to determine how the participant identifies themselves with regard to physical activity.

  2. GRIT Score [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    A questionnaire will be administered at the beginning and end of the REACH sessions to determine how the participant perceives their ability to stick with (follow through on) projects or goals .

  3. Automaticity [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    A questionnaire will be administered at the beginning and end of the REACH sessions to determine the participant's level of automaticity with regards physical activity and breaking up long periods of sitting.

  4. Attendance record [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    Attendance will be recorded as a percentage of total sessions for the REACH and walking sessions.

  5. Sedentary Behaviour [ Time Frame: weekly for 8 weeks ]
    we will request participants to record their sedentary behaviour data from activity monitors

  6. Hourly activity [ Time Frame: weekly for 8 weeks ]
    we will request participants to record their hourly activity (number of hours active per day) data from activity monitors

  7. Step Count [ Time Frame: weekly for 8 weeks ]
    we will request participants to record their daily step count data from activity monitors
