USP

SALSA is a unique tool for creating a supportive environment that eliminates barriers for seniors to begin and sustain an active lifestyle.

This is achieved by addressing barriers, that hinder elderly to exercise, making use of motivation theory, including experts and fostering socialization and group activities.

‚Äč

There are many factors that prevent elderly from exercising, however there are also many methods which involve improving self-determination, self-efficacy and setting goals that can help motivate elderly to exercise. The first step, when in doubt, is to consult the experts. Motivation to initiate and maintain exercise can be achieved through customizing (facilities) to seniors needs, being creative in cost-effective methods, providing exercise prescription that involves the seniors input and encouraging socialization during exercise.
