PALS North America

Want to bring the Physical Activity for Lifelong Success (PALS) program to your state?

Let us help you become a PALS license holder!
 
Help sedentary older adults change their behavior to become more active and reach Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans (including cardiovascular, strength, balance, and flexibility exercises!) PALS uses the self-regulation theory to engage older adults to become more active. Participants learn functional exercises selected specifically for older adults. They set short and long-term goals, track activity, and engage with social support in a group atmosphere. Leaders engage participants in promoting motivators, identifying barriers, and problem solving to overcome barriers. 
 
Participants go from exercising less than 60 minutes per week to doing 180-240 minutes per week!


A Wisconsin-based organization, WIHA is the national license holder for the PALS program and can help you get the program started anywhere in the U.S.  Join us and together we'll help people in your community experience life-changing results with PALS.
