The study is a randomized 3-month community-based exercise intervention with a control group and 2 different exercise groups: walking group and Chinese square dancing group.Eighteen communities will be selected in Beijing, and they will be age matched and randomly grouped into walking, Chinese square dancing and control groups. Each community will include twenty subjects (ten patients with hypertension and ten patients with hypertension complicated with diabetes) aged 40-69 years. All exercise sessions will be supervised and subject's exercise implementation process will be managed with intelligent equipment. The purpose of the study is to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of different training programs.

The demographics data, physical activity questionnaires, blood pressure, blood glucose, blood lipids, height, weight and physical fitness (cardiorespiratory fitness,muscle strength, muscle endurance, flexibility, body composition) will be measured before and after 3-month exercise training .The adverse reactions in the implementation of the interventions will be recorded. The primary outcomes are blood pressure and blood glucose.


The global burden of disease study shows that unreasonable diets and physical inactivity are the largest health risks facing the world today. In recent years, foreign and domestic scholars have gradually introduced the concept of " Exercise is Medicine " guide the the public exercise scientifically. However, under the special cultural background of China, it is urgent to answer how to help the public to realize reasonable scientific exercise, how to choose the popular exercise mode and whether the exercise mode is scientific and effective.

Previous meta-analysis studies on the improvement of blood pressure and blood glucose by walking have been published, but few studies on Chinese square dancing have been conducted. Previous studies on whether Chinese square dancing was scientific and effective were mostly small sample population studies carried out by Chinese scholars. The research results were of large heterogeneity, and the research design lacked reasonable consideration.

This study intends to select two common exercise mode for scientific evaluation, one is walking and the other is Chinese square dancing. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of two common types of exercise (walking and Chinese square dancing) in Chinese patients with hypertension and patients with hypertension complicated with diabetes.
