  1. Effects of mail-mediated, stage-matched exercise behavior change strategies on female adults'leisure-time exercise behavior.

    Article - En anglais

    This study compared three forms of mail-mediated exercise behavior change strategies on the weekly leisure-time exercise behavior of individuals at different stages of exercise (SOE).

    Subjects were 113 healthy females, 22 to 50 years old (M=36.9).

    After being classified by SOE, subjects were randomly assigned to receive one of three treatments :

    • lifestyle exercise packet (LEP) ;

    • structured exercise packet (SEP) ;

    • or control packet.

    Packets were mailed to subjects at their worksite.

    After 31-days, 108 (95%) subjects responded to a query about their previous week's leisure-time exercise behavior.

    A 3 (SOE) x3 (Exercise group) x2 (Time) REANOVA revealed main effects for SOE (p<0.0001), exercise group (p<0.05), and time (p<0.0001).

    No significant interactions were observed.

    Post-hoc testing showed that those in the action/maintenance stages differed from those in the preparation and precontemplation/contemplation stages (p<0.01), and that LEP subjects reported significantly more weekly leisure-time exercise post-intervention compared to controls (p<0.01).

    These findings suggest the LEP was the most effective strategy for encouraging weekly leisure-time exercise.

    Future research should be directed at corroborating these findings and determining the potential long-term value of this strategy in comparison to more traditional strategies.
