To explore the post-exercise effect of fitness atmosphere on the score of emotional experience scale of the elderly. Method: 90 elderly patients aged 70-79 years old were screened from urban nursing homes and randomly divided into an individual group and a collective group, with 45 patients in each group. The individual group uses the method of walking alone for exercise, while the collective group uses the method of collective fitness. After the first exercise and 2 weeks of continuous exercise, the post-exercise psychological emotional state of the two groups of elderly people was measured and compared using the Post-exercise Emotional Experience Scale. Result: After the first exercise, the emotional experience scale score of the collective groups was significantly higher than that of the individual group (P<0.05). After 2 weeks of continuous exercise, there was no significant difference in the two scores of the individual group, while the score of the group was significantly better than its score at the same time point after the first exercise (P<0.05 or P<0.01). Conclusion: To the extent that the content of the exercise is identical, the effect of collective activities of the elderly is significantly better than that of individual activities, and the difference grows more significant over time. Tip: Different forms of fitness exercise atmosphere will have significant differences on the emotional experience scale scores of the elderly, which should be related to the physical and mental characteristics of the elderly who are afraid of loneliness and desirous for communication.
