Abstract Background and Objectives: Regular physical exercise can attenuate age-related cognitive decline. This study aimed to investigate the effect of a physical exercise multicomponent training based on exergames on cognitive functioning (CF) on older people.Research Design and Methods:This randomized controlled trial included older people aged 61–78. Participants were randomly allocated to an intervention group (IG; n= 15) or active control group (CG; n= 16). The IG was exposed to a combined training with traditional exercise and exergaming, twice-a-week over a period of 12 weeks. The CG performed only traditional sessions. CF was assessed by COGTEL. The time points for assessment were at zero (pre-test), 12 (post-test), and 17 weeks (follow-up).
