SITLESS home exercise programs for older adults
With this exercise programs, we want to inspire older adults to exercise at home. They can use this exercise program as their main form of exercise or in addition to the exercise they may already include in their weekly routine, e.g. fitness classes, walking. The program includes a full-body workout and contains a combination of strength, balance and coordination exercises. Furthermore, an additional section about sedentary behavior (how to reduce sedentary behavior, frequently asked questions, and information on why it’s important to reduce sedentary behavior) is included in the end of the program. Three levels are designed with the possibility to differentiate the exercise to your functional level and training experience.
The workout in this brochure is meant for individuals with a minimal training experience who want to do seated exercises.
The workout in this brochure is meant for individuals with intermediate training experience who want to do seated exercises.
The workout in this brochure is meant for individuals with advanced training experience.

The lastest paper from the SITLESS consortium
The lastest paper from the SITLESS consortium addressing the association between loneliness, sedentary behavior and physical activity.
New protocol paper has now been published online by BMJ Open
SITLESS is a randomised controlled trial determining whether exercise referral schemes can be enhanced by self-management strategies to reduce sedentary behaviour and increase physical activity in the long term, in community-dwelling older citizens. The intervention is complex and is using process evaluation to understand how implementation, causal mechanisms and context shape outcomes. The specific aims are to assess fidelity and reach of the implementation, understand the contextual aspects of each intervention site, evaluate the mechanisms of impact, and explore perceived effects.

SITLESS project video – In five different languages
The SITLESS video is now available in 5 different languages: English, Spanish, Catalan, Danish and German. SITLESS is a Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) and the main aim of the project is to reduce sedentary behavoir in the older population. The RCT consist of an Exercise Referral Schemes intervention combined with Self-Management Strategies. The video is briefly trying to show the different elements of the SITLESS intervention.
