    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    This study evaluated the effects of aerobic exercise physical education on blood pressure in high-risk, predominantly African-American, adolescent girls.

    Methods

    Ninth-grade girls (n=99) with blood pressure above the 67th percentile were randomized to 1 semester of aerobic exercise classes or standard physical education classes.

    Result

    The study was completed by 88 girls.

    At posttest, only members of the aerobic exercise group increased their estimated cardiorespiratory fitness.

    The aerobic exercise group had a greater decrease in systolic blood pressure than the standard physical education group (P<0.3).

    Conclusions

    Aerobic exercise physical education is a feabible and effective health promotion strategy for high-risk adolescent girls.
