Dr Keogh’s research focuses on understanding the acute stresses, and the chronic adaptations resulting from a range of physical activities, particularly resistance training and more recently dance, walking and physical video games like the Nintendo Wii Sports for athletic populations and/or older adults.  With his older adult research, he examines the benefits, barriers and motives to both general and specific therapeutic physical activity. His research involving older adults has focused on understanding the causes of the age-related decline in upper limb fine-motor control, the benefits of resistance training and dancing for improving physical function and reducing falls risk as well as benefits, barriers and motives to physical activity in prostate cancer survivors.
