Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in women (AHA, 2005). It is essential to explore new strategies to promote physical activity (PA) to lower women's CVD risk. Although social support has been identified as a determinant of PA in women, it is usually weakly operationalized. The Heart and Soul Physical Activity Intervention (HSPAP) is an innovative church-based health promotion intervention conceptualized through appraisal, belonging, tangible, and self-esteem domains of social support provided to promote activity in midlife women. An experimental repeated measures nested design preliminary study was conducted with randomization of two similar rural communities to intervention or comparison groups, with 2 churches per community (n=42 women). Physical activity outcomes improved in midlife women following the HSPAP intervention. Secondary study aims were to determine if midlife women participating in the HSPAP had higher levels of appraisal, belonging, tangible, and self-esteem domains of social support at the end of 12 weeks than women in the information only group. The Interpersonal Support Evaluation List (ISEL) was used to measure social support in response to the intervention. Although not significant, the HSPAP groups' mean total social support score increased from 80.84 at baseline to 91.98 and the comparison groups' score increased from 96.7 to 99.5 in the 12 weeks. RM-ANOVA found a significant interaction in one intervention church group in the total ISEL score (p=.000, large n2=0.23) and the domains of appraisal (p=.009, large n2=0.015) and self-esteem (p=.001, large n2=0.23) support. The Support Interaction Questionnaire (SIQ) was adapted to measure social support specific to exercise. RM-ANOVA found a significant interaction in one intervention church group in the SIQ score (p=0.06, large n2=0.29). Study results provide preliminary support for the effectiveness of the HSPAP intervention in boosting the perception of social support for physical activity in midlife women.
