The number of people aged 60 and up is increasing faster than any other age group in the world [3]. Reduced physical performance in elderly persons has been associated with a higher risk of death [1,2]. Neuromuscular deterioration, gait and balance difficulties, loss of mobility, and an increased risk of falls and fractures are all classic symptoms of ageing [1,3]. High-intensity interval training (HIIT) has been described as a promoted and encouraged for increasing indices of performance and various health markers in older persons [3].
