This study is utilizing a group fitness program that mimics the Physical Activity Guidelines for Fitness. The purpose was to evaluate if a multimodal group fitness intervention could singularly produce the physiological and musculoskeletal health benefits of the established physical activity prescrip-tion. 25 sedentary, but otherwise healthy, adults (15 women and 10 men) between the ages of 25 - 40 years completed the protocol of a 30-week group exercise program. It started with a 6-week familiarization period, continued with a 12-week block of 6 group fitness classes per week (3 cardiovascular, 2 strength, 1 flexibility), and concluded with a 12- week block of 7 classes per week (4 cardiovascular, 2 strength, 1 flexibility). In this publication you find the full abstract of this study and an easy-to-read powerpoint presentation summarizing the outcomes of the study.
