The impact of a fitness/wellness course on psychobehavioral factors

Loughren, Elizabeth A. January 2003 (has links)
Today American society is becoming more sedentary than any other generation before. This shift in society has shown a decrease in exercise activity. The purpose of this study was to evaluate psychobehavioral factors in relation to exercise adherence and well being. Participants (N= 80) were self-selected based upon one's enrollment into one of eight selected Physical Education Fitness Wellness (PEFWL) walking courses. This study employed a pretest-intervention-post-test quasi-experimental design, which evaluated barriers to habitual physical activity, demographics, exercise decisional balance, exercise enjoyment, exercise processes of change, stages of change for adopting physical activity, and social support in relation to current exercise patterns via a 128-item online questionnaire. Data was analyzed using 2 x 2 (Stage x Time) ANOVA and dependent t-tests with a level of significance set at p <.05. The results indicated there was a significant increase in self-efficacy from pre to post testing. No significant differences were found in pre and post testing levels of exercise enjoyment, decisional balance, social support, and the pros and cons of decisional balance in relation to physical activity parameters. / School of Physical Education

The effect of a structured exercise program on physical daily activity levels of previously sedentary and habitually active adults / Title from signature sheet: Effect of structured exercise on daily physical activity levels of previously sedentary and habitually active adults

Thornhill, Annie N. January 2006 (has links)
This study examined the effect of a moderate intensity exercise training program on daily physical activity levels of previously sedentary and habitually active adults. Previously sedentary subjects wore a pedometer while completing a seven consecutive day baseline physical activity measurement. After the seven day baseline trial, they received a traditional exercise prescription for 6 weeks while continuing to wear the pedometer every day. Habitually active subjects wore a pedometer for seven consecutive days while continuing their normal daily and exercise routines. Results showed that the previously sedentary subjects increased their physical activity levels by approximately 2,000 steps/day after starting a structured exercise program. On the non-exercise days, there was little to no change in physical activity levels (7,354 ± 2,344 steps/day) for the sedentary subjects when compared to the baseline daily physical activity levels (7,232 ± 1,692 steps/day). The habitually active group showed significantly higher (p<0.05) physical activity levels (12,389 ± 3,391 steps/day) when compared to the sedentary group's 6`h week physical activity levels (9,697 ± 2,212 steps/day). In addition, the habitually active group showed similar physical activity levels on non-exercise days (8,780 ± 3,295 steps/day) when compared to the sedentary group's 6`h week physical activity on non-exercise days (7,354 ± 2,344 steps/day). In conclusion, in previously sedentary subjects, a moderate intensity exercise program resulted in a significant increase in daily physical activity but not to the level of the habitually active subjects. / School of Physical Education, Sport, and Exercise Science
