Revista Brasileira de Cineantropometria e Desempenho Humano , 2010,
Abstract: Concurrent training has been frequently used, although little is known about the effects of the exercise sequence on physical fitness in elderly women. The objective of this study was to determine the effect of the sequence of aerobic and resistance exercise on physical fitness in women over 50 years old. The sample consisted of 26 women randomly divided into two groups: A1 (aerobic and resistance training) and M1 (resistance and aerobic training). Body weight, height, body mass index (BMI), sum of skinfolds, flexibility, and leg, back and hand grip strength were measured. Descriptive statistics and one-way ANOVA were used for data analysis, adopting a level of significance of 5%. The results showed significant changes in back strength (p=0.01) and leg strength (p=0.0002) after 12 weeks in group A1, and in leg strength (p=0.02) in group M1. Except for BMI (p=0.05), no differences in anthropometric measures, strength or flexibility were observed between groups after testing. In conclusion, improvement of strength and the lack of change in the other indices were observed in the women studied, irrespective of the sequence of concurrent training. This finding is important for older adults since it directly affects improvement in the quality of life and health of this population.

Abstract:
Verifying the association between body image dissatisfaction and goals to the physical activity practice. The sample consisted of 299 goers of fitness center, of both genders, with ages between 16 and 50 years old. Information about gender, age, educational level, socioeconomic level and goals for the physical activity practice were collected using a previously tests questionnaire. Regarding the goals, the participants should identify if the motivation for the practice was related to aspects health, aesthetic or social relationships aspects, choosing yes or no. The body image was determined using the set of silhouettes and to verifying the body image dissatisfaction we considered the difference between the current silhouette and the ideal silhouette pointed out by the individuals. Numerical variables were expressed as mean ± standard deviation and categorical variables as absolute and relative frequency. Pearson’s chi-square test was used to verify the associations among goals to the practice, gender, and age group. Analysis of variance was used to verify the associations between the goals to the practice and the body image dissatisfaction. There was a low statistically significant correlation between body mass index and body image dissatisfaction (rs0.29 - p < 0.001). The proportion of women (69%) who practiced physical activity with aesthetics goals was higher than that of men (31%). In addition, 92% of the sample showed body image dissatisfaction. Regarding the goals to the physical activity practice, men aimed more muscular body while the women wished more lean body. Men and women have different perceptions regarding body image.

Open Access Library Journal (OALib Journal) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/oalib.1104635
Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to verify which means of information has the most influence for the practice of physical activity among fitness centers goers. The sample consisted of 299 individuals of both genders, in the age range of 16 to 50 years old. A biosociodemographic questionnaire was used to collect data on gender, age, educational level, socioeconomic level and means of access to information. The scores obtained with this research were typed in spreadsheet and later transferred to the statistical package SPSS version 17.0 for Windows where they received statistical treatment. Of the total number of respondents, 62.2% were female; the majority were aged between 16 and 30 years (63.2%); in the most prevalent category, those were graduated at university (46.8%); and 85.3% belonged to social strata A and B. In relation to the media that most influenced them to practice physical activity, the internet ranked first (84.95%), followed by television (83.95%), newspaper (50.84%), radio (45.48%), magazines (23.08%) and others (4.35%).

Open Access Library Journal (OALib Journal) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/oalib.1104647
Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to verify the association between physical activity frequency and quality of life among fitness centers goers. Participants were 299 individuals of both genders, who attended eight fitness centers. For the collect of sociodemographic data, weekly frequency, duration and time of practice of physical activity, a biosociodemographic questionnaire was used. The quality of life was measured using the WHOQOL-100 questionnaire. Numerical variables were described as mean ± standard deviation or median (25 percentile—75 percentile) and categorical variables as absolute or relative frequency. The associations between quality of life and weekly frequency of physical activity were evaluated using the Spearman correlation coefficient. Comparisons between quality of life and gender, age group, duration of training, schooling and socioeconomic level were tested through analysis of variance and the Tukey post hoc test. A probability value of P ≤ 0.05 was considered statistically significant. Of the total number of respondents, 62.2% were women; 54.9% practiced physical activity four or more times a week and 69.6% had practice lasting up to 90 minutes. There were statistically significant differences between the duration of physical activity in terms of physical, psychological, independence and facet 25, which evaluates the general quality of life. Subjects with prolonged frequency (0.3%) obtained the best scores in relation to the domains, physical and psychological. Men had a higher score than women in the psychological domain and level of independence. There were no statistically significant differences in quality of life among the different age groups. It’s concluded that the more active people are, the better their quality of life is.

Abstract: the aim of the present study was to evaluate public awareness of the association between four behavioral factors (sedentary lifestyle, smoking, alcohol abuse, and inadequate diet) and eight diseases (diabetes, hypertension, aids, osteoporosis, lung cancer, depression, liver cirrhosis, and acute myocardial infarction). we conducted a population-based cross-sectional study including 2,096 individuals 10 years or older. a random clustered sampling strategy was used. for each behavioral factor, a knowledge score was constructed, ranging from zero to eight points. the highest mean score was observed for inadequate diet (5.3), followed by smoking (5.1), sedentary lifestyle (4.7), and alcohol abuse (4.5). overall, higher knowledge scores were observed among people with high socioeconomic status and more schooling, and in intermediate age groups. government health promotion strategies are needed to raise public awareness of risk factors for chronic diseases.
