Abstract To present detailed adverse event (AE) data from a randomized controlled trial (RCT) of a home-based exercise program delivered to an elderly high-risk population by an exercise therapist after medical clearance from a general practitioner (GP).; Randomized controlled trial.; General practitioner practices and participant homes.; Community-dwelling, chronically ill, mobility-limited individuals aged 70 and older (mean 80 ± 5) participating in a RCT of an exercise program (HOMEfit; ISRCTN17727272) (N = 209; n = 106 experimental, n = 103 control; 74% female).; A 12-week multidimensional home-based exercise program (experimental) versus baseline physical activity counseling (control). An exercise therapist delivered both interventions to participants during counseling sessions at the GP's practice and on the telephone.; Adverse events were documented at least at every counseling session and assessed by the GP and an AE manager.; One hundred fifty-one AEs were reported in 47% (n = 99) of all participants. Twenty-one (14%) events were classified as serious. In six events (4%; n = 4 experimental, n = 2 control), participation in the study had to be discontinued immediately. In 25 events (17%; n = 9 experimental, n = 16 control), the intervention had to be suspended. The intervention was determined to have caused two events (both nonserious and in the experimental group).; Even though the program appears to be safe, high morbidity unrelated to exercise can constitute a critical challenge for sustained exercise participation.
