Interval Walking Training Can Increase Physical Fitness in Middle-Aged and Older People

Exerc Sport Sci Rev. 2017 Jul;45(3):154-162. doi: 10.1249/JES.0000000000000113.


No long-term exercise training regimen with high adherence and effectiveness for middle-aged and older individuals is currently broadly available in the field. To address this problem, we developed an exercise training system comprising interval walking training and an information technology network that requires only minimal staff support. We hypothesized that our training system could increase physical fitness in older people.
