Phase 1: Formative Study A 3-month formative study with a community advisory group at the Modonna Center to co-design the study protocol (the content and delivery format of the exercise programs, recruitment and retention procedures and strategies, and procedures of study assessments). The research team and the community advisory group (n=10) met weekly with the goal of making FE-SaLiR appealing to older Latino adults while maintaining the integrity of Chinese medicine exercises. Areas modified include the sequence of the exercises, difficulty level of the exercises, verbal instruction, background music, and visual aids (as compared to the official video published by the General Administration of Sport of China), etc. An English instruction video with the modified components was developed for phase 2 of the proposed study. The group identified the barriers and enablers in health promotion programs for low-income, low-literacy, minority populations, and develop the strategies to engage and motivate the study participants. The advisory group also guided the investigators in developing a process evaluation plan that provides insightful information on the acceptability of FE-SaLiR from the study participants in Phase 2 of the proposed study. Phase 2: Pilot Intervention Using a three-arm design, 3 senior centers were assigned to one of three conditions: 1) Wu Qin Xi and Ba Duan Jin unmodified; 2) FE-SaLiR: the modified Wu Qin Xi and Ba Duan Jin; 3) active control. The interventions will be delivered from February 2020 to May 2020. A total of 60 senior adults were expected to be enrolled in the study at baseline. Data collection will be conducted at baseline and immediate post-intervention and include measures on physical and cognitive function, biometrics, health surveys, and mindfulness. Recruitment: Participant recruitment started 1-month before the intervention by sending recruitment packets to senior centers. This packet includes a study information sheet, a recruitment flyer, and an informed consent form. Process Evaluation: The process evaluation is informed by Phase I formative study. Qualitative and quantitative information on class attendance, home-exercise logs, class observation checklist, and participant's evaluation of the exercise will be collected. Focus group discussions will also be conducted regarding participants' experiences and with the goal of obtaining their input in planning a senior-friendly physical activity program.
