Physical inactivity in older women is a major factor in increasing their risk for disability and mortality. The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of an intervention using 5 behavioral counseling (BC) sessions with a comparison group receiving 1 BC session to increase moderate physical activity, muscle strength and flexibility among sedentary women 50-75 years. Aims are: (a) facilitate change in moderate intensity physical activity, muscle strengthening, and flexibility from baseline to 12 weeks (b) increase physical activity self efficacy and decrease barriers to physical activity from baseline to 12 weeks (c) enhance interpersonal support from baseline to 12 weeks (d) determine the percentage of women who reach the Healthy People 2010 goal of thirty minutes of moderate intense physical activity 5 or more days of the week. Conceptual Framework: Pender's (1996, 2002) conceptual framework underlies the design of the BC intervention. Methods: A pre-post test experimental design is used with random assignment of 50 women recruited from an urban Midwestern community. The intervention group attends 5 BC sessions focused on goal setting and accomplishment, overcoming barriers, mastery of moderate level physical activity and strengthening. The comparison group receives 1 BC session at week 1. Outcomes measured at baseline and week 12 includes: (a) behavioral markers using the 7 Day Activity Recall and self reports for strengthening and flexibility activity (b) biomarkers using the Rockport Walk test, hand dynamometer and sit to stand for strength, and sit and reach for flexibility. Self efficacy and interpersonal support are measured using reliable and valid instruments. Results: Repeated measures ANOVA will be used to calculate the effectiveness between the groups on all outcome variables. Final analysis will be completed August, 2004.
