There are few exercise opportunities for the Japanese elderly who are
over 70 years of age and have less interest in exercising. The purpose of
this study was to discuss whether or not an exercise program including
education for the Japanese sedentary elderly had any effect on maintaining
the activity of daily living and to discuss factors influencing exercise
adherence for them. Three groups were created from the elderly who had
been participating in sedentary activities; a community center activity
group (n=15), senior housing group (n=18), and community-residing group
(n=6). Another group (n=42) continuing exercise for more than one year was
recruited as a control group. The functional fitness and body composition
of the four groups were measured using sitting-and-standing,
zigzag-walking, hand-working, and self-care working tests, and body fat
and muscle mass measures. Also, a questionnaire was used to obtain data on
the activity self-efficacy of the elderly. The elderly of the community
center activity and senior housing groups performed armchair exercises
once a week for seven months. The functional fitness of the community
center activity group was similar to that of the senior housing group even
though the majority of the senior housing dwellers were the frail elderly.
The functional fitness of the community center activity and senior housing
groups tended to improve after the seven-month armchair exercises although
no statistical significance was seen. The elderly of the community center
activity group had lower self-efficacy scores on acquiring habitual
exercise and knowing how to exercise. In conclusion, the functional
fitness of the Japanese elderly participating in sedentary activities was
similar to that of the frail elderly, suggesting that the sedentary
activity elderly should be encouraged to make a habit of exercising daily
to prevent them from becoming frail physically.
