-to-face in the participant’s own home or in a private room on the university campus, according to participant preference. Before the interview started, written informed consent was taken, and functional mobility was assessed using the Timed Up and Go test ( Podsiadlo & Richardson, 1991 ). This test ensured

. Although walking is a trigger that brings on IC, engaging in regular walking exercise can, over time, improve symptoms and increase walking capacity by up to 200% ( Lane, Ellis, Watson, & Leng, 2014 ). Increased walking is associated with greater functional mobility, including stair-climbing ( Gardner et

reports significant improvements in functional mobility as measured by the timed up and go ( Jehu et al., 2017a ), but no improvements in posture as measured through center of pressure measures ( Jehu et al., 2017b ) following BMT and BMT + C training. Therefore, this suggests that BMT and BMT + C may

Physical activity can help older adults reduce their risk of chronic diseases, improve functional mobility, and increase quality of life ( U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2008 ). Older adults are the least physically active group, and physical activity tends to decline with age. In
