Why We Promote Evidence-Based Programs

Evidence-based programs for agingEvidence Based Health Promotion Programs provide demonstrated clear benefits through rigorous research, minimal risk to participants, and clear physiological, psychological, and social benefits to program participants.

Evidence-based programs provide measurable outcomes in senior health and fitness such as

  • an increase in adherence to best practices
  • decreases in falls
  • increases in functional fitness for seniors
  • increase in positive self perception
  • increases in self efficacy
  • other positive health benefits

Completion of an evidence-based program from a certified trainer or coach can help senior members of our community feel empowered to manage their own health, stay active and lead more fulfilling lives.
