Brief description Thirteen percent of all cases with Alzheimer’s Disease are potentially due to a lack of physical activity. This study investigates whether a 6-month physical activity program can significantly increase physical activity levels in older adults who are concerned about their memory and who are not physical active. New about this trial is that participants can choose their own goals they want to reach and the additional involvement of physical active volunteers who will support the participants.
