This study aimed to examine the prospective association between healthy lifestyle behaviors and objectively measured physical function in midlife women.
Participants included 1769 racially/ethnically diverse women, ages 56–68 yr, from the Study of Women's Health Across the Nation cohort. Physical function was assessed at the 13th follow-up visit ...

During pregnancy, a sedentary lifestyle may have negative consequences on maternal and foetal health status. The main objective of this project is to assess the effects of an exercise intervention in overweight and grade I obese pregnant on maternal and foetal health markers.
The present study aims ...
Whether amount of time spent in sedentary activities influences on clustered metabolic risk in elderly, and to what extent such an influence is independent of physical activity behavior, remain unclear. Therefore, the aim of the study was to examine cross-sectional associations of objectively assessed physical activity and sedentary behavior ...
We conducted a laboratory-based calibration study to determine relevant cutpoints for a hip-worn accelerometer among women ≥60 years, considering both type and filtering of counts.
Two hundred women wore an ActiGraph GT3X+ accelerometer on their hip while performing eight laboratory-based activities. Oxygen uptake was measured using an ...
It is unclear how physical activity estimates differ when assessed using hip- vs wrist-worn accelerometers. The objective of this study was to compare physical activity assessed by hip- and wrist-worn accelerometers in free-living older women.
A cross-sectional study collecting data in free-living environment.
Participants were from the ...

We examined independent and joint associations of objectively measured physical activity (PA) and physical fitness (PF) with pain, fatigue and the overall impact of fibromyalgia in 386 fibromyalgia women aged 51.2 ± 7.6 years. Levels of PA (light, moderate and vigorous) and PF were measured with triaxial accelerometry and the Senior Fitness Test, ...
Physical activity is important for maintaining healthy weight. The time of day when exercise is performed—a highly discretionary aspect of behavior—may impact weight control, but evidence is limited. Thus, we examined the association between the timing of physical activity and obesity risk in women.
A cross-sectional ...

To determine if 7 d physical activity (PA) predicts energy intake over the same days and if PA on a given day predicts energy intake on the same day, the next day or subsequent days.
A 7 d prospective investigation. PA was measured using accelerometers worn for seven consecutive days. During the ...
Background: The current guidelines for aerobic activity require that adults carry out ≥150 min/week of moderate-intensity physical activity, with a large body of epidemiological evidence showing this level of activity to decrease the incidence of many chronic diseases. Less is known about whether light-intensity activities also have such ...

Purpose To examine characteristics of accelerometer-assessed sedentary behavior among older women.
Methods An ancillary study to the Women’s Health Study is collecting 7 days of accelerometer-assessed (Actigraph GT3X+) physical activity and sedentary behavior data in ~15,000 women. This analysis includes data from the first 5,032 (mean age, 70.1 yr) women with ≥4 ...
