OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between objectively measured physical activity (ACT), particularly intensity of physical activity (iACT), and body fat percentage (BF%) in 278 middle-aged women. Secondary purposes were to ascertain the association between physical activity duration (dACT) and BF% and the extent to which(More)
Randomized trial of 527 corporate employees was conducted to evaluate an exercise intervention based on the transtheoretical model and tailored to individual stages of change. No significant difference in physical activity by stage was evident at baseline among three treatment groups. At follow-up, the group receiving a staged-based message increased(More)
PURPOSE To determine the extent to which objectively measured intensity of physical activity (PA) predicts change in body fat (BF%) in women. DESIGN Prospective cohort study of PA intensity and body composition in middle-aged women. SETTING The study took place in a metropolitan Mountain West community. SUBJECTS Two hundred and twenty-eight women(More)
Purpose: To determine objectively measured intensity of physical activity (iPA) and its relationship to high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), lowdensity lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), and the LDL/HDL ratio in women. Methods: Two hundred seventy-two women (40.1 y) wore CSA-MTI model 7164 accelerometers to index intensity and volume of physical(More)
BACKGROUND The influence of physical activity (PA) changes on risk of abdominal fat gain in midlife women has not been studied using objective measures and controlling for potentially confounding variables. METHODS Changes in PA were assessed within a prospective cohort of 233 middle-age (40 +/- 3 years), nonobese, nonsmoking, primarily Caucasian women by(More)
Objective: To determine the extent that physical activity accounts for changes in body composition and body weight over time, independent of dietary intake and other potential confounding factors. Methods and Procedures: A cohort of 256 women ages 35-45 at baseline participated in the study. A prospective design was utilized with baseline and follow up(More)
BACKGROUND This study was conducted to determine if cardiorespiratory fitness at baseline, and changes in fitness, influence risk of weight gain (>or= 3 kg) over 20 months. Another aim was to ascertain if potential confounding factors, including age, education, strength training, energy intake, and weight, influence risk of weight gain. METHODS In a(More)
