Active Women over 50

Being physically active is the single most thing we can do to boost our physical and mental health, now and for the future.

About Active Women over 50

Active Women over 50 is a research study investigating the impact on physical activity in women aged 50 and over, with accessing information about the health and wellbeing benefits of physical activity, and opportunities to engage in physical activity.


Active Women over 50 participants will receive support to be more active. This will include access to a website designed for women aged 50 and over, telephone advice with a physiotherapist and regular messages to motivate physical activity uptake.

The study researchers are based at the University of Sydney in collaboration with researchers at Macquarie University (Sydney), Curtin University (Perth), and the Sydney Local Health District. The Active Women over 50 research study has been approved by relevant ethics committees.
