Physical activity has many physical, mental, and social health benefits. Interventions can be successful at helping people initiate participation, but there is a lack of evidence about the ability of these interventions to help adults maintain their physical activity. This systematic review and meta‐analysis aims to address this evidence gap. We investigated the extent to which successful physical activity interventions with demonstrated success within randomized controlled trials result in… Expand
Brain structure and function predict adherence to an exercise intervention in older adults
Neuroimaging features alone can predict adherence to a structured group-based exercise intervention in older adults which suggests there is substantial utility of these measures for future research into precision medicine approaches. Expand


Effectiveness of adult community-based physical activity interventions with objective physical activity measurements and long-term follow-up: a systematic review and meta-analysis
Evidence of PA intervention effects beyond 12 months and sustained up to 4 years for both steps/day and MVPA is provided, which has important implications for potential long-term health benefits. Expand
Effectiveness of physical activity interventions in achieving behaviour change maintenance in young and middle aged adults: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
This review provides evidence of some effective BCTs for maintaining behaviour to 15 months in young and middle-aged adults and shows greater consideration must be given to how future interventions encourage and measure maintenance of changes. Expand
Systematic review of maintenance of behavior change following physical activity and dietary interventions.
To advance the evidence, the field needs consensus on reporting of maintenance outcomes, controlled evaluations of intervention strategies to promote maintenance, and more detailed reporting of interventions. Expand
What Happens When the Party is Over?: Sustaining Physical Activity Behaviors after Intervention Cessation.
In conclusion, behavior change interventions improve PA over the course of the intervention; however, these improvements are generally not sustained after the intervention concludes. Expand
A comparison of direct versus self-report measures for assessing physical activity in adults: a systematic review
The findings suggest that the measurement method may have a significant impact on the observed levels of physical activity, which poses a problem for both reliance on self- report measures and for attempts to correct for self-report – direct measure differences. Expand
Physical Activity and Health Outcomes Three Months After Completing a Physical Activity Behavior Change Intervention: Persistent and Delayed Effects
The intervention resulted in sustained improvements in physical activity, strength, central adiposity, and social well-being with lower extremity function benefits appearing 3 months after intervention completion. Expand
Cluster randomized controlled trial of a multilevel physical activity intervention for older adults
PA significantly increased in the intervention condition compared with the control condition and remained significantly higher across the 12 month study and changes in PA and blood pressure achieved were comparable to other studies with much younger participants. Expand
Time Regained: When People Stop a Physical Activity Program, How Does Their Time Use Change? A Randomised Controlled Trial
The results of this study demonstrate strong recidivist patterns in physical activity, but also in other aspects of time use, in designing and determining the effectiveness of exercise interventions. Expand
Integrated motivational interviewing and cognitive behaviour therapy can increase physical activity and improve health of adult ambulatory care patients in a regional hospital: the Healthy4U randomised controlled trial
This study demonstrates that a low contact coaching intervention results in beneficial changes in physical activity, anthropometrics and health-related outcomes that were maintained at follow-up in adults who report being insufficiently active to an ambulatory care clinic. Expand
Effect of a Behavioral Intervention Strategy on Sustained Change in Physical Activity and Sedentary Behavior in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes: The IDES_2 Randomized Clinical Trial
Among patients with type 2 diabetes at 3 diabetes clinics in Rome who were followed up for 3 years, a behavioral intervention strategy compared with standard care resulted in a sustained increase in physical activity and decrease in sedentary time. Expand
