Feasibility and safety of a walking football program in middle-aged and older men with type 2 diabetes.
Aims: This study aimed to analyse the feasibility and safety of a community-based walking football program in middle-aged and older men with type 2 diabetes (T2D).
Conclusion: A community-based walking football program for T2D patients revealed high levels of adherence and enjoyment, and light-to-vigorous exercise intensity. The adverse events were according to the expected for the population and activity. Therefore, walking football seems to be a feasible and safe exercise strategy, and has the potential for large scale implementation for T2D control.
