Indiana U. study points to health disparities in physical fitness
Date:6/4/2011

a fitness center is prohibitive for these patients, she added.

What is of great concern, Keith said, is that low levels of physical fitness are strongly related to negative health outcomes, including increased morbidity and mortality. The distinct differences among physical fitness levels between CHC patients and members of the medically affiliated fitness center demonstrate the clear need to identify low-cost and accessible means for vulnerable populations to improve their physical fitness levels, she said.

Access to health care for all populations is important, Keith said, but it is not enough if it doesn't include opportunities to exercise.

More about the study:

  • The study began in May 2010 and is expected to be completed in December 2011. To date, 150 subjects have been tested for physical fitness.

  • Subjects who expressed interest in learning more about their physical fitness were invited to participate. Each subject completed the Rikili and Jones Senior Fitness Test, which includes functional assessments of lower body endurance, upper body endurance, aerobic endurance, lower body flexibility, right and left upper body flexibility, and percent body fat.
