Physical activity is associated with health and reduced risk of all-cause mortality. Yet, only 15% of U.S. adults achieve adequate physical activity to reduce their risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and other chronic, debilitating conditions. The Healthy People 2010 Goals advise all adults to attain at least 30 minutes of moderate intensity activity most days of the week, with fewer women meeting these recommendations than men. Social support provided in community settings was found to be effective in promoting physical activity (MMWR, 2001); however, few social support interventions to increase physical activity are available. This study investigates the effectiveness of the Heart and Soul Physical Activity Program (HSPAP) (Peterson, 2001) in promoting physical activity in midlife women, ages 35-65 years. The HSPAP is an innovative church-based health promotion strategy, with strategies conceptualized through appraisal, belonging, tangible and self-esteem domains of social support, designed to promote an active lifestyle in women. An experimental repeated measures design with randomization of community to intervention or comparison groups was used to test the influence of the HSPAP intervention (n=44). Two similar rural communities were randomized to the experimental or the comparison groups to avoid cross-intervention contamination. The primary aim was to determine the effectiveness of the HSPAP in increasing physical activity, energy expenditure, and cardiorespiratory fitness, measured at baseline, 6 weeks, and 12 weeks, in midlife women compared to women receiving information only. The secondary aim was to determine adherence to physical activity recommendations following the HSPAP. Results of the study will be derived following data analysis with univariate repeated measures analysis of variance. Social support programs promoting active lifestyles emphasizing wellness of mind, body and spirit has the potential to increase the quantity and quality of life for aging women. AN: MN030036
