The purpose of the SuPA mobility study is to determine whether 6 months of one-on-one health coaching or group-based health education sessions will increase positive lifestyle behaviours, such as physical activity participation, and improve mobility in individuals who are experiencing some challenges with their mobility (e.g., slower walking). See details of the study below.
