Objective : To examine the effectiveness of exercise setting on training adaptations of balance, muscle function and functional performance in older adults. Design: A randomized trial part of a larger intervention, with subjects assigned to either home (HE) or group-based exercise (GE). Setting: Subject own homes or a University exercise clinic. Subjects: Fifty-six older adults, 31 women and 25 men, 65-85 years of age. Intervention: Progressive resistance and aerobic training undertaken for 24 weeks.
