Compelling evidence documents the benefits of physical activity. Despite a Healthy People 2010 goal to decrease the proportion of inactive women to 20%, 40% of women get no physical activity. Nurse clinicians are key players in promoting increased activity. Clinicians need to know traits of persons who are active in order to focus interventions that are efficient and effective. This cross-sectional study compared traits of working women who were physically active with inactive women. Variables included benefits, barriers, self-efficacy, demographic, and biological traits. Data were obtained from 373 working women, 23% of whom were physically active. T-tests and chi square tests identified differences between the active and inactive participants. Active women saw more benefits and fewer barriers to physical activity. They had significantly lower body mass indexes (p = .001). Their mean BMI was 26.8, compared to 30.5 for inactive women. They had lower mean HDL-Cholesterols--62.3 mg/dl, compared to 54.5 mg/dl for inactive women (p
