In order for a growing aging population to preserve autonomy, older adults need to maintain mobility levels through participating in physical activity (Costello, Kafchinski, Vrazel, & Sullivan, 2011). The importance of physical activity in older adult life is widely recognized, yet older adults are the least active age group in the United States (Bethancourt, Rosenburg, Beatty, & Arterburn, 2014). This qualitative study focused on physical activity through individual interviews with older men and women (N=10) residing in an independent living community. Understanding more about what contributes to engagement may help to improve wellness programs in independent living communities.
