‘A Lot of People Just Go for Walks, and Don’t Do Anything Else’: Older Adults in the UK Are Not Aware of the Strength Component Embedded in the Chief Medical Officers’ Physical Activity Guidelines-A Qualitative Study

Gluchowski, A., et al.; International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health

Strength recommendations have been embedded within the UK’s Chief Medical Officers’ physical activity guidelines since 2011. However, there is limited evidence that these recommendations have been successful in their population-wide dissemination. This study aimed to explore the engagement of community-dwelling older adults with the guidelines to date and to gain a nuanced understanding of the awareness, knowledge, and action that older adults take to fulfill strength recommendations. 15 older adults living in the UK participated in one online interview. Results showed that no participants were aware of the strength guidelines. Ageism and strength training misconceptions were found to be major barriers to participation in strengthening exercise. Solutions to improving the uptake and adherence to strength training participation are likely to be more successful when they include opportunities for social interaction, ability-appropriate challenge, and provide both short- and long-term benefits.
