This study stems from the implementation of the "Taiwan Elderly Fitness Subsidy Program for the Year 2023" and explores the benefits of group exercise instruction on the physical fitness, cognitive memory, and agility of the elderly. Method: Participants aged 65 and above are required to undergo a doctor’s diagnosis to confirm whether their physical condition is suitable for participation, and then a professional sports instructor will design and organize a group fitness course suitable for seniors, which will be conducted 4 times a week, 2 hours each time, for three months. The evaluation method adopts the post-film observation and analysis method. Four team sports coaching experts evaluate the movement ability at three observation time points (week 1, week 6, and week 12), and score 21 evaluation indicators. Results: The results showed that all indicators in week 12 were significantly better than those in weeks 1 and 6 (p<0.001), and the benefits of all indicators were large (Cohen’s d: 2.79~5.11), ICC (0.73~0.94). Conclusion: Through the guidance of progressive energy-enhancing exercises, the physical fitness and cognitive functions of the elderly can be improved, especially the overall ability to keep up with the musical rhythm and incorporate high and low impacts, forward and backward, and lateral movements, dynamic and static balance control, interval training and agility improvement, and the enhancement of softness and cognitive memory to achieve health promotion benefits.
