This randomized controlled study investigated the effectiveness of soccer and Zumba on fitness and health indicators in female participants recruited from a workplace. One hundred seven hospital employees were cluster-randomized to either a soccer group (SG), Zumba group (ZG), or control group (CG). Intervention effects for the two training groups...

Abstract The aim of this study was to evaluate the physiological effects of soccer and Zumba among female hospital employees during a 40-week intervention period. Hospital employees (n = 118) were cluster-randomised to either a soccer group (n = 41), a Zumba group (n = 38) or a control group (n = 39). Both training groups were encouraged to perform...
Article
This 9-month randomised controlled workplace physical activity trial investigated the effects of soccer and Zumba exercise, respectively, on muscle strength, maximal jump height, sit-and-reach flexibility and postural sway among female workers. A total of 107 female hospital employees aged 25–63 were cluster-randomised to a soccer group, a Zumba gr...

Background: This 40-weeks intervention study evaluates the effects on self-reported health status, emotional wellbeing, general self-efficacy and sleep problems among female hospital employees. Methods: 107 employees were cluster-randomized into three groups; football (FG), Zumba (ZG) and control (CG). Outcome measurements were conducted at baselin...

Background: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the associations between demographic characteristics, lifestyle factors and school-related conditions, and symptoms of mental health problems in Norwegian upper secondary school students following the COVID-19 pandemic. Methods: In this cross-sectional study design we used a binary logistic r...
Chapter
Over the past decades, the world population has become more physically inactive, leading to, obesity, elevated blood pressure and lipid profile, and decreased maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max), which are risk factors for several non-communicable diseases. Health care workers are reported to have an unhealthy lifestyle with a high prevalence of obesity...

Article
Background: Insufficient sleep is associated with increased risk of several health concerns. Although physical activity is generally considered to improve sleep, the influence of different levels of exercise frequency, duration and intensity respectively, has not been sufficiently examined to allow specific recommendations to the general populatio...
Article
Cytokines are potentially useful biomarkers of sepsis and other inflammatory conditions. Many cytokines can be released by leukocytes and platelets after sampling. The sampling and processing techniques are consequently critically important to measure the in vivo levels. We therefore examined the effects of four different anticoagulants, EDTA, citr...

Flow is a rewarding psychological state that motivates individuals to repeat activities. This study explored healthcare workers' flow experiences during a workplace exercise intervention. Seventy-nine females were assigned to either a 12-week football or Zumba exercise intervention and their flow experiences were assessed at the beginning, midway a...

Introduction. For gaining health benefits from physical activity, regular participation and maintenance are essential. Volitional skills are important for initiating and maintaining desirable actions (Elbe et al., 2005), and are assumed to play an important role in the adherence to regular physical activity. The aim of this study was to investigate...
Article
Different scientific traditions represent different epistemological perspectives, and the scientific perspective that you advocate will govern the way in which you view what is being investigated, e.g. a natural science approach would have a completely different focus from a social science one. Since the 1600s, the heyday of rationalism, and toward...

This 40-week workplace physical training RCT investigated the effect of soccer and Zumba, respectively, on muscle pain intensity and duration, work ability, and rating of perceived exertion (RPE) during work among female hospital employees. 107 hospital employees were cluster-randomized into two training groups, and a control group. The training wa...
Thesis
Full-text available
Introduction Health care workers represent a work group of predominantly female workers, generally characterized by low physical capacity (cardiovascular fitness), high prevalence of overweight/obesity, and low degree of physical activity at leisure time. The combination of these factors makes health care workers a high risk group for non-communica...

Abstract The present study investigated the heart rate (HR) response to various types of physical education (PE) activities for 8- to 9-year-olds (five school classes, n = 93) and the fitness effects of a short-term PE training programme (three of the five classes, n = 59) with high compared to low-to-moderate aerobic intensity. HR was recorded dur...
