Low Intensity Physical Activity During Sitting on Glycemic Control and Vascular Function in Obese Individuals

Prolonged sitting is a common behavior in contemporary humans. In epidemiological studies, increased sitting time has been associated with increased risk for cardiovascular disease and all-cause mortality. Recent research has also shown that interrupting sitting time with standing prevents the poorer glycemic control. However, studies are lacking which evaluate the impact of low intensity physical activity during prolonged sitting on vascular function. Whether low intensity phy...

Breaking up Sitting With a Treadmill Desk in Office Workers

Sitting for long uninterrupted periods of time can increase risk of heart disease, diabetes and early death, even if you take part in the United Kingdom government guidelines for physical activity of 21/2 hours per week of exercise. Effective interventions to reduce the risk of these diseases are therefore needed. The aim of this study is to examine the effects of regularly breaking up sitting time with light intensity treadmill desk walking among office workers on health marke...

Independent Walking for Brain Health

Physical activity interventions with older adults can improve brain health; however most interventions have been performed in gym-like settings that reach a small sector of the senior population. Since not everyone can access a gym, it is important to study whether brisk walking in real world environments can also help brain health. This study will use mobile health devices to help older adults independently walk for brain health, thus representing a critical step towards the d...

Effects of Cycling Workstation on Cardiometabolic Health for Workers With an Office-sitting Desk (REMOVE)

The recent literature has highlighting the importance of the time of inactivity and the level of physical activity (PA) as predictors of metabolic cardio risks. Now, sedentary lifestyles are well recognized as one of the causes of mortality. As with physical activity, a dose-response relationship appears to exist: mortality would increase with time spent in sedentary behaviors. However, this relationship would not be linear: the more the daily sitting time increases, the more t...

Combined Effects of Prolonged Sitting and Mental Stress on the Cardiovascular System

Prolonged sitting may pose a public health risk through its effects on the cardiovascular system, and may lead to impaired whole-body cardiovascular health, which includes both vascular and cerebrovascular function. These effects may interact with other environmental variables, such as stress. However, no study has investigated the combined effect of a mental stressor and prolonged sitting on vascular and cerebrovascular function. The combined effect of prolonged sitting and me...

Molecular and Functional Neurobiology of Physical Exercise

In this study, we use positron emission tomography (PET) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to study brain mechanisms that contribute to physical exercise-induced reward. We examine whether acute physical exercise releases endogenous opioids in the brain, and whether it modulates brain responses to viewing appetizing foods. Unraveling these mechanism are instrumental from a public health perspective, given the undisputed positive health effects of physical exercis...

Effects of Physical Activity Adequacy Mindsets on Health and Wellbeing

It is widely known that physical activity is important for health and wellbeing, yet most Americans do not meet recommended levels of activity. People may commonly believe that only the actual amount of physical activity matters for health and wellbeing. However, the investigators propose that individuals' mindsets about the adequacy of their level of physical activity and its corresponding health consequences (activity adequacy mindsets) affect health outcomes, over and above ...

Sedentary Behavior Interrupted - A Pilot Study of Acute Interventions on Prolonged Sitting

Sedentary behavior, characterized by excess sitting time during waking hours, is detrimental to health and increases cardiometabolic disease risk, independent of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity. The mechanisms that mediate this are unknown and there are no evidence-based methods known for effectively intervening on sedentary behavior. The consequences of prolonged sitting time are of particular interest in older adults as sedentary behavior and cardiometabolic disease ri...

The Cogni-Action Project: Physical Activity, Brain, and Cognition

Education and health are crucial topics for public policies as both largely determine the future wellbeing of the society. Currently, several studies recognize that physical activity (PA) benefits brain health in children. However, most of these studies have not been carried out in developing countries or lack the transference into the education field. The Cogni-Action Project is a crossover-randomized trial. The aim of the study is to determinate the acute effects of three di...

Referral From Primary Health Care Centers to a Physical Activity Program. A Randomized Controlled Trial

Declining physical activity and the associated rising burden of disease is a major public-health problem and it has long been known that being physically active has positive health effects. The virtual absence of a public health practice infrastructure for the promotion of physical activity at the local level presents a critical challenge to control policy for chronic disease. We aimed to assess the efficacy of a 3-months physical activity program in primary health care to crea...

Physical Activity and Sedentary Behavior Change; Impact on Lifestyle

Diabetes Prevention Program translational efforts, such as the Group Lifestyle Balance Program (GLB), have been shown to be effective in reducing weight and modifying diabetes and CVD risk factors in a variety of diverse community settings. Although one of the two primary goals of these DPP translation programs focuses on increasing physical activity levels, few published DPP translation studies reported results on change in physical activity with only one study reporting activ...

Sedentary Behavior Interrupted Randomized Controlled Trial (P2)

Epidemiological findings indicate that older adults do not meet physical activity (PA) guidelines & spend up to 11 hrs/day sitting. Given the high prevalence of sedentary behavior (SB), the higher chronic disease risk in this population, & the age-associated challenges of meeting traditional PA guidelines, involving longer bouts of moderate PA, we hypothesize that older adult health will benefit from new strategies to interrupt sitting. This protocol "Sedentary Behavior Interru...
