Problem: Low-income mothers are at risk for sedentary living. Purpose: To pilot-test a physical activity (PA) intervention for mothers enrolled in the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) nutrition program. Conceptual Framework: Derived from the Transtheoretical Model of Behavior Change. Aims: (a) To test if the intervention produced changes in the primary outcomes (stage of behavior change and PA behavior) and the secondary outcomes (improved behavior change constructs: self-efficacy, decisional balance, pros, cons, self-liberation, counter conditioning, environmental reevaluation and helping relationships). (b) To identify the effect size. (c) To test if improvements in the primary outcomes were associated with the secondary outcomes. Design: Randomized pre- post-test (baseline and 2 weeks post 8-week intervention). Setting: Three WIC programs, Midwestern state. Subjects: WIC mothers (N=52). Intervention: Randomized to provider-counseling with 4 biweekly phone contacts: (a) "Moms on the Move", or (b) self-breast-examination (attention control). Measures: Stage of PA behavior (Stage of Exercise Adoption), PA behavior (7-day recall, Digiwalkerâ step counter), behavior change constructs: self-efficacy (Self-efficacy for Exercise), decisional balance, pros, cons (Exercise Benefits and Barriers Scale), self-liberation, counter conditioning, environmental reevaluation (Processes of Exercise Adoption subscales) and helping relationships (Social Support for Exercise). Results: Among completers (n=44), experimental group progressed in stage of PA behavior more than control, ?2(1, N=44)=20.50, p<.001, d=1.50. Experimental group had greater weekly PA minutes, F(1,42)=46.85, p<.001; daily energy expenditure (EE), F(1,42)=23.01, p<.001; and weekly EE from PA, F(1,42)=32.63, p<.001. Experimental subgroup (n=11) step counts increased pre-post, t(10)=6.16, p<.001. Effects sizes (ds) were >.80. Experimental group had greater improvements in behavior change constructs, ps <.001. Multiple regression showed that improvements in primary outcomes were associated with the experimental intervention but, improvements were not clearly attributable to the behavior change constructs. Conclusions. This first provider-counseled PA intervention for WIC mothers demonstrates sufficient efficacy to warrant further testing. AN: MN030314
