The goal of this preliminary study was to assess the feasibility and benefits of a 12-week facility-based individualized exercise program with a personal trainer for perimenopausal women. Within the context of a randomized design, 12 perimenopausal women (M=47.2 yrs; SD=+- 2.5 yrs) were included in the study. These women were randomly assigned to one of the two conditions: exercise and non-exercise. The exercise intervention was a 12-week facility-based individualized exercise program with a personal trainer. The outcome measures included 1) perimenopause-associated symptoms (PAS); 2) body composition (fat mass, lean body mass, and bone mass); and 3) sustainability of exercise participation. Measurements were taken at baseline, 12 weeks, and six months. Data analysis is currently in process. Due to the small sample size, a case study approach will be utilized for data analysis. The analysis will proceed from each individual case within a group of comparisons, across cases within groups, to comparisons across groups. Data will be plotted graphically using SPSS, allowing for simple analysis for trend. Descriptive statistics will also be done to allow further comparisons. Findings from this study will provide important preliminary data with the long term goal of establishing guidelines for prescriptions of exercise for the management of PAS.
