Physical inactivity in African-American (AA) and Hispanic American (HA) women is a major factor in increasing their risk for chronic disease, disability and premature mortality. The percentage of AA women and HA women meeting the recommended physical activity guidelines is lower than Caucasian women. The objective of this study is to determine if a behavioral counseling intervention can increase self-selected physical activity levels in AA and HA women 50-69 years of age. Women in the intervention group will receive eight behavioral counseling (BC) sessions, the comparison group will receive four BC sessions, and an attention control group will receive general health information at baseline. Data collection for all groups will occur at baseline, 6-months, 12-months, 18-months, with final data collection at 24-months. Aims are to increase a) moderate intensity physical activity, muscle strengthening, and flexibility, b) to increase exercise self-efficacy, c) to increase family and friend interpersonal support and (d) determine the percentage of women who reach the Health People 2010 goal of thirty minutes of moderate intensity physical activity five or more days of the week. Conceptual Framework: Pender's (2006) conceptual framework underlies the design of the BC intervention. Methods: A pre-post test comparison group design will be used with random assignment of women recruited from an urban Midwestern community. The intervention group will attend eight BC sessions focused on goal setting and accomplishment, overcoming barriers, and mastery of moderate level physical activity, strengthening, and stretching. The comparison group will receive four BC sessions. Outcomes measured will include: (a) behavioral markers using the 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 will be measured using reliable and valid instruments. This research is funded by a Faculty Development Award of the Health Futures Foundation #200453.
