Physical inactivity in older women is a major factor in increasing their risk for chronic disease, disability and premature mortality. The purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of an intervention using five behavioral counseling (BC) sessions with a comparison group receiving one BC session to increase moderate intensity physical activity, muscle strengthening, and stretching activity among sedentary women 50-75 years. Aims were to (a) facilitate change in moderate intensity physical activity, muscle strengthening, and flexibility from baseline to 12 weeks (b) increase exercise self-efficacy (c) increase family and friend interpersonal support from baseline to 12 weeks (d) determine the percentage of women who reach the Healthy People 2010 goal of thirty minutes of moderate intensity physical activity five or more days of the week. Conceptual Framework: The Health Promotion Model (Pender, 2002) underlies the design of the BC intervention. Methods: A pre-post test comparison group design was used with random assignment of 46 women recruited from an urban Midwestern community. The intervention group attended five BC sessions focused on goal setting and accomplishment, overcoming barriers, mastery of moderate level physical activity, strengthening, and stretching. The comparison group received one BC session at week one. Outcomes measured at baseline and week 12 included: (a) behavioral markers using the 7-Day Activity Recall (b) biomarkers using the Rockport Walk Test, hand dynamometer and sit to stand for strength, and sit and reach for flexibility. Exercise self-efficacy and interpersonal support were measured using reliable and valid instruments. Results: The five BC sessions for older women were successful in increasing cardiorespiratory fitness and family support for exercise, while maintaining exercise self-efficacy. Both the five BC sessions and one BC session were successful in increasing left hand grip, leg strength, and flexibility.
