Factors influencing PA

Factors influencing PA
•    Predisposing – cognitive factors related to making the decision to engage in a particular behavior
o    Self-efficacy, motivation, enjoyment, beliefs, knowledge, existing skills
?    (reason why you take the bus in the morning)
•    Enabling – factors that allow one to engage in a particular behavior
o    Access, environments, & new skill development
?    (have no control of these factors such as sidewalks)
•    Reinforcing – factors that reinforce a particular behavior
o    Other people, positive or negative consequences
?    (getting feedback from people)

Record two facilitators and the type
•    Roommates asked me to go to CRWC (r)
•    Felt motivated to play BB due to high skill (p)
Record two barriers and the type
•    Didn’t have class today (E)
•    CRWC cancelled activity class (E)

Activity Monitors
•    Pedometers& Accelerometers
o    Pros
?    Relatively inexpensive, small, easy to use
?    Tracks PA directly, immediate feedback, cue to action
o    Cons
?    Most do not track all types of PA
?    Accuracy based on device
?    Most do not have FITT or specific guidelines

Step classifications
•    Category…steps/day
•    Sedentary…<5000
•    Low active… 5000-7499
•    Somewhat active… 7500-9999
•    Active… 10,000-12,499
•    Highly active…>12,500+

Is 10,000 an accurate recommendation for health?
•    Healthy adults get ~ 7,000-13,000 steps/day
•    10,000 -> too much activity for some individuals
o    older adults
o    individuals with disabilities
o    sedentary just starting a program
•    10,000 -> too little activity for others
o    children (>12,000 for health)
o    individuals with high caloric intake
o    athletes
•    May or may not meet the guidelines…

Is 10,000 steps an appropriate recommendation?
•    Easy to remember
•    Behavior (process) focused
•    Probably associated with good health
•    But,
o    PA guidelines not based on steps or distance
o    Distance & steps -> body size (stride) & speed

Creating Goals
•    Goal types
o    Short-term & long-term
o    Process/behavior based & outcome (achievement based)
•    Process/behavioral Goals
o    Something you do
o    Dependent on willingness/effort
o    Need to be achievable & challenging
•    Outcome goals – physical change or achievement
o    Takes time
o    Dependent on other factors than willingness/effort
o    Rate of progression differs among individuals
o    Your week 2 goal should NOT be an outcome goal
o    Week 2 goal should be behavioral process goal?
?    Based on what you are able to do…

Goal setting
•    SMART Goals
o    S –specific (what exactly do I want to achieve)
o    M – measureable (can I tell if I met this goal?)
o    A – attainable (is this a possible goal for you?)
?    Some suggest “actions” for this part of SMART. the actions that you will do to achieve the goal
o    R- realistic (given the time?)
o    T – time (when)

Set activity goals
•    Lifestyle PA goal (step goal)
o    From baseline, increase steps by 20% per week
o    Example:
?    Baseline week – average of 6000 steps per day
?    Goal = (6000 x 1.2) or ((6000 x .2) + 6000) = 720 steps/day
•    Exercise Goal
o    Consider current level & ways to improve
o    Aerobic, resistance training, flexibility
o    Adjust FITT

Practice
•    Suppose you average 8000 steps/day
o    Calculate 20% increase
?    8000 x 1.2 = 9600 steps
o    Goal: Next week I will average 9600 steps per day.
o    Plan: I will achieve this goal by walking to class M-F and walking my dog every day for 10 minutes
•    Suppose you do CV exercise 2x/week for 30 min
o    Meeting recommendations? No
o    Goal: Next week I will perform cardiovascular exercise for 30-45 min 3 days per week
o    Plan: I will plan to do the exercise at the rec on MWF after my 10:30 am class. I will pack exercise clothes and shoes the night before so my bag is ready to go.

What is missing from these goal statements?
•    I will increase my activity by exercising 2x per week.
o    Specific? Which type of activity?
•    I will take 10,00 steps
o    Could be more specific… “I will average 10,000 steps per day this week or I will take 10,000 steps per day

Challenging Situations
•    I’m not really interested in changing my activity
o    Consider a small change
•    Already active – consider how you can create variation or have a specific focus for the week
•    I don’t have much say in my PA…
o    Consider which aspects you DO have control over
?    Effort, focus, how you think about mistakes
•    Do I need to go above 10,000 steps?
o    Maintenance an OK goal.  Still specify hat you will do to maintain your PA level
o    Be more specific with fitness/exercise goals
