  • National Blueprint: Increasing Physical Activity Among Adults Age 50 and Older
    • The National Blueprint is a guide for multiple organizations, associations, and agencies, to inform and support their planning work related to increasing physical activity among America’s aging population.
  • International Curriculum Guidelines for Preparing Physical Activity Instructors of Older Adults
    • Because of the lack of licensure or endorsement of training guidelines for preparing physical activity instructors of older adults, facility directors can hire whom they want, regardless of the instructors’ educational backgrounds. People receiving little or no specialized training can advertise themselves as senior fitness instructors. These guidelines were created to give a framework to preparing physical activity instructors of older adults.
  • Personal Energy Plan (PEP): A Worksite Program
    • From the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Personal Empowerment Plan (PEP) is a strategy for work sites to promote healthy eating and moderate physical activity.
  • Link Between Physical Activity and Morbidity and Mortality
    • A Surgeon General fact sheet report on health benefits of physical activity and the health burdens that could be reduced through exercise.
  • National Expert Meeting on Qi Gong and Tai Chi, University of Illinois, 2005
    • Much of the evidence about the effectiveness of Qi Gong and Tai Chi in the West has emerged from intervention programs of relatively short duration that were designed primarily for research purposes. Many issues must be addressed in order to translate findings from such research studies into effective community programs that can be delivered in senior centers, hospitals, faith-based institutions, retirement homes, and other community settings.
  • Promoting Physical Activity: A Guide for Community Action
    • A step-by-step guide to community- wide behavior change from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
