In a nutshell: This New Zealand study looked at community-based people who participated in a fall prevention exercise class called SAYGO (Steady as you go) to see if there was an association between how long people participated in the class and their falls rate over 12 months. It found that in general, longer-term participation in the class correlated to lower fall rates.
