Are you a man over the age of 65 who is not currently active, not living in a care home but wanting to be more physically active?
Dr. Dawn Mackey (SFU Department of Biomedical Physiology and Kinesiology) and researchers at the Centre for Hip Health and Mobility are looking for Men on the Move!
Men on the Move is a program designed to promote and support mobility and physical activity among older men in Metro Vancouver.
Men on the Move is a 12-week study running in the fall of 2015 and the winter of 2016.
Participants will do the following: complete surveys and assessments, attend meetings once a month, work 1-on-1 with an activity coach, and use an activity monitor and iPad to track information about their health and activity.
Meetings and assessments will take place at the Kerrisdale, Kitsilano, Marpole-Oakridge, and West-End Community Centres.
You will receive up to $90 for your time, a FREE 3-month transit pass, a FREE recreation centre pass, health feedback, iPad training, and coaching from certified fitness instructors if you participate!
Let us help you kick-start your journey towards being more physically active and healthy!
