environment). A functional approach to healthy aging broadens the field to consider the person within the environment ( Vaz, Silva, Mancini, Carello, & Kinsella-Shaw, 2017 ). For instance, rather than prescribing lower limb strength training for fall prevention, practitioners could prescribe a functional

Worldwide, the facilitation of healthy aging is a policy priority in an attempt to manage the substantial growth in health system costs forecast to result from population aging ( World Health Organization, 2015 ). Physical activity is critical to healthy aging, and strength training is a

implementation of the program have been described elsewhere ( Hopman-Rock & Westhoff, 2002a , 2002b ; Westhoff & Hopman-Rock, 2002 ). The program covered several topics that are important for healthy aging such as healthy eating, PA, and safety in and around the house. In the current study the focus is on the

critical to develop lifestyle treatment guidelines that help this population minimize the risk of cancer recurrence. However, for survivors, public health efforts should not only be focused on staying cancer free, but also on healthy aging, free of all chronic conditions. In this study, multiple biomarkers

As a result, the prevalence of age-associated morbidity and disability is increasing, presenting a challenge to national infrastructures and healthcare systems ( Goldman et al., 2013 ). Accordingly, promoting healthy aging

depends on the task complexity and changes with both healthy aging and PD ( Maidan et al., 2016 ; Seidler et al., 2010 ). A recent functional magnetic resonance imaging study indicated a reorganization of the cortical activity during complex finger tapping in PD compared to healthy peers. The authors

focusing on reducing a sedentary lifestyle by increasing LPA has been suggested as a more effective way of promoting healthy aging, instead of focusing on achieving aerobic fitness among the more sedentary and frailer older adults ( Buman et al., 2010 ; Paterson, Jones, & Rice, 2007 ). Nonetheless
