Objective: The purpose of this study was to identify effectiveness of an individualized intervention with self-monitored ground-based walking in middle-aged female nurse managers with less regular exercise. Design: Randomized control study for a 12-week intervention. Samples: Fifty-two subjects were recruited from a general hospital in western region of Japan for the study ended in January 1999. Intervention & Outcomes Variables: The intervention under an active participation of subjects in planning and monitoring to increase walking adjusting it to their own daily activity was applied during the 12-week. Specified, however, were the combined brisk walking and the aim of expanding 5kcal/1kg of body mass/day based on a protocol with an individualized approach. Outcomes were changes from a baseline in exercise energy (kcal/kg/day) and time (minutes/day) of walking. Methods: Subjects were assigned randomly into an intervention group (IG) and a control group (CG). The IG undertook the combination of intense and intermittent brisk walking under the protocol, and the CG was asked to maintain previous level of daily activity. The exercise energy and time involved in ground-based walking during daily activity were measured for the 12-week using a microcomputer device (6×4×1cm,wt=40g) clipped to the waist. Exercise energy and time of routine activity in both groups as the baseline values were measured prior to the study by the same device. Findings: The mean exercise energy/kg/day at the baseline were 3.6±0.7kcal in IG and 3.4±0.9kcal in CG. Those for the 12-week were 4.7±1.0 in IG and 3.9±0.8 in CG (p=0.01). The mean of change in exercise energy/kg/day were 1.2±1.0kcal in IG and 0.5±0.7kcal in CG (p=0.01). The mean brisk walking time/day for the 12-week were 12.8±6.3 minutes in IG and 8.8±3.2 minutes in CG. The mean of change in brisk walking time/day were 4.7±5.4 in IG and 2.0±3.0 in CG (p=0.04). Time spent for the usual walking and jogging increased in IG, but not statistically significant. Conclusions: The intervention with the individualized approach using the combined brisk walking could increase the exercise energy and time during daily activity. Implications: The individualized intervention taken in this study may increase exercise adherence in middle-aged working women with less physical activity.
