Introduction and Purpose

One of the complications resulting from it is the most serious and common problems related to the aging process, which is a prelude to the health, performance and independence of the elderly. The purpose of this research was to compare two methods of exercise at home and trainer-oriented exercise on motor performance related to falls in inactive elderly women.

Materials and Methods

45 inactive elderly women were randomly divided into three groups of 15 people to exercise at home (67.2±15.93 years), coach-oriented training (67.5 ± 80.89 years), and control group (65.6±63.54 years) were divided. The variables of lower limb muscle strength, flexibility, Static and dynamic balance, agility, maximum walking speed, 10-meter hurdle walk and fear of falling were evaluated in the pre-test and post-test. Two experimental groups performed sports exercises with the aim of increasing the subjects' balance for 10 weeks. Data analysis was performed using paired t-tests and ANOVA at a significance level of P≥0.05.


The results of the pre-test showed that there was no significant difference between the research variables between the three groups. The results of the post-test showed that both training at home and trainer-oriented training had a significant effect on all movement performance variables. Also, there was a significant difference in the post-test of flexibility, agility and static balance indicators between the home training group and the trainer-oriented group, so that these factors were better in the trainer-oriented group than the home training group.

Discussion and Conclusion

According to the results, elderly women can use both home and coach-based exercise programs to improve movement performance related to falls. But in certain circumstances, you can use the method of training at home as an alternative method.
