The percentage of African American (AA) and Hispanic American (HA) women meeting the recommended physical activity guidelines is lower than Caucasian women. These women are at increased risk for chronic disease, disability, and premature mortality. The final results are reported for a 24-month study with an objective to determine if a behavioral counseling intervention increased self-selected physical activity levels in 50 years and older AA and HA women. Women in the intervention group received eight behavioral counseling (BC) sessions, the comparison group received four BC sessions, and an attention control group received general health information at baseline. Data collection for all groups occurred at baseline, 6-months, 12-months, 18-months, and 24-months. The results were analyzed to determine if there was an increase in a) moderate intensity physical activity, muscle strengthening, and flexibility, b) exercise self-efficacy, and c) family and friend interpersonal support. Conceptual Framework: Pender's (2006) conceptual framework underlies the design of the BC intervention. Methods: A pre-post test comparison group design was used with random assignment of women recruited from an urban Midwestern community. The intervention and comparison groups BC sessions focused on goal setting and accomplishment, overcoming barriers, and mastery of moderate level physical activity, strengthening, and stretching. Outcomes measured and reported include: (a) behavioral markers using the Modified 7-Day Activity Recall (b) biomarkers using the Rockport Walk Test, sit to stand for strength, and sit and reach for flexibility. Exercise self-efficacy and interpersonal support were measured using reliable and valid instruments. This research is funded by a Faculty Development Award of the Health Futures Foundation #200453.
