Summary of intervention activities

Intervention activity 10k steps/d Additional details 5 times/wk Intervention2: • Instructed to “walk 10,000 steps per day” • Had the option to record physical activity performed to achieve the 10,000 steps per day goal • Instructed to reset the DW-200 pedometer each morning Given a physical activity prescription that built up to 10 000 steps/d by week 4, asked to attend biweekly information sessions monthly for 2 mo afterward Everyday 0-4 wks: wore pedometers; 4-12 weeks, wore pedometers with a goal of 10 000 steps/d COPD rehabilitation (including exercise training and dietary intervention), 4 lifestyle physical activity counseling and goal-setting sessions to increase steps/d Step goal that would be equal to 3 km/d above baseline by end of intervention; Wk 1, 1.4 km/d increase, then increased by 0.5 km/d per wk for 3 wk until the 3 km target was reached Walking program (30% increase in baseline over 12 wk) and 12-h arthritis self-management program Dietary and activity intervention prescribed based on each participant’s baseline activity (25% increase in physical activity) and given during a 1-on-1 counseling session Instructed to increase step counts by 2000 steps/d; physical activity assessed using diary, active Pal activity monitor, and pedometer; food and drink intake recorded Guide to Health Intervention - Physical activity component: Step count goals were set initially at 500 steps/d above baseline mean for 5 d/wk (in module 1) and progressed by 500 steps/d in subsequent weeks. Participants encouraged to reach their step goal 5 d/wk to an overall goal of 3,000 steps/d over baseline for 5 d/wk, corresponding to health guidelines. This equals 2,142 steps/d over baseline. The sequence used for physical activity reporting, feedback, goal setting, and strategy selection was similar to that used for self-regulation in the nutrition modules. “Healthy Steps” program: 8-week physical activity intervention included a counseling session with goal setting and strategy selection, self-monitoring, and weekly e-mails. Step goal: if <8000 at baseline, then 10% increase over baseline every 2 weeks until >10 000/d; if 8000-10 000, then increase by 5% every 2 weeks until >10 000/d; if baseline ≥10 000, then maintain • Daily steps measured by pedometer, average of 7 days used for daily walking • Instructed to check daily steps every day and increase daily walk at least 1000 steps besides the daily walk at baseline • Instructed not to change eating habits Brief physician endorsement of physical activity; given brochure, pedometer, and 3 follow-up telephone calls from a health educator; each week, told to increase steps/d by 400 (approximately 10% above baseline) Sources Araiza et al.
