The purpose of the present two studies was to investigate whether in framing messages that target salient beliefs of youth, the type of goal framed matter to promote physical activity (PA) participation among low-active adolescents (i.e., participating in less than 1 h/day of moderate-to-vigorous PA). More specifically, the main trial (study 2) com...

Objectives The present study explored the differences between athletes’ and parents’ perceptions of parental practices (i.e., behaviours implemented by parents in the context of their child’s sport) by considering athletes’ and parents’ gender. Design cross-sectional study. Method Parents (N = 352) and athletes (N = 256, M = 14.72 years) complete...

(1) Background: Despite health benefits of engaging in regular physical activity (PA), adolescents fail to achieve the recommended PA practice (especially among girls with low socio-economic position). Researchers have been prompted to adopt models of social cognition to help identify the role of psychological factors in influencing PA and sedentar...

Background: The time adults spend sitting in front of screens is a health risk factor. In contrast, walking and cycling to and from work, also known as active commuting, could promote physical activity and improve population health. Objective: This study investigated automatic properties role in explaining active commuting and screen-based sedentar...
Article
Parental behaviours influence athletes’ psychological functioning in different ways. To date, research has typically explored parental behaviours one by one, and few papers have simultaneously considered sets of parental behaviours. The objectives of this study were to: (a) identify parental behaviours using a person-centred approach and differenti...

According to coaches, support provided by parents can have either a positive or a negative influence on athlete development (Gould, Lauer, Rolo, Jannes, & Pennisi, 2006). Existing literature have demonstrated the complexities and challenges of being a sport parent (Harwood & Knight, 2015). Parents of elite athletes face on stressful and challenging...

The opening of female sections in training centers has led to an increase in the number of female footballers pursuing a dual project. These adolescents have to face many demands (e.g., physical, psychological, and social). Thus, their parents play an essential role in achieving this dual project and in their personal development. However, existing...

Parents play a crucial role in an athlete's development. However, the support provided by parents can have a positive influence on the athlete's development but also a negative influence. The majority of previous studies have investigated the relationships between one parental behavior in the sports context and various variables of athletes without...
Article
Objective: The purpose of this research was to evaluate the effects of an intervention on reducing sitting time in a professional setting. Methods: The intervention consisted of a group presentation on sedentary behavior at work and active work breaks, followed by an individual planning phase. Participants were then invited to use alert software fo...

Objective: Carotid atherosclerotic plaques are a source of emboli for stroke. ‘Unstable’ carotid atherosclerotic plaques may have intraplaque haemorrhages, neovessels, prevalent macrophages, excessive calcium deposits, a large lipid core, and a thin fibrous cap. Regular physical activity may lower the risk of plaques becoming unstable. We evaluated...

Parents are very important in athlete’s development. Parents provide various types of supports to their child (e.g., financial, organizational, and emotional; Wylleman De Knop, Verdet, & Cecic-Erpic, 2008), particularly when athletes are involved in intensive training settings. Parental involvement can affect the athlete’s development either positi...

Parental involvement increases the chances for children to achieve their sporting potential, to have a positive psychosocial experience, and to develop a range of positive developmental outcomes (Vincent, & Christensen, 2015). Such involvement requires parents to develop specific intrapersonal, interpersonal, and organizational skills. Given the im...

This research assesses the Spanish version of the Generic Multidimensional Automaticity Scale (GMAS) in physical activity behaviours that had been developed and validated in French by Boiché et al. (2016). Two studies evaluated the GMAS psychometric properties. The results suggest that the Spanish version of the GMAS is a valid instrument to evalua...

Teacher prompting is a means to increase preschool children’s physical activity. Twelve 4- and 5-year-olds at one preschool in the southwest U.S. participated in an ABA prompting intervention that utilized a bug-in-the-ear device to signal teachers to prompt sedentary children to increase physical activity level during unstructured recess. RM-ANOVA...

Health-related physical activity recommendations are now widely known. To achieve benefits for their health, youth have to accumulate at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity activity per day. The accuracy of field measure of physical activity is a complex question and no Gold standard exist. This study compares the data of two acceler...

Some religions espouse doctrines that (in)directly impact physical activity (PA) behavior. Yet limited PA interventions have been tailored to religious minorities. Thus, a formative study was conducted to examine the effect of a faith-based pedometer program (Virtual Umra) on psychological correlates of PA behavior and their contribution to school-...

Full-text available
Background: Even when objective physical activity (PA) measures are preferred, many intervention studies with Latina women rely on self-reports because they are more feasible and the type and domain of PA is of interest. Purpose: This study examined the sensitivity and specificity of the IPAQ for detecting intervention-related changes in physica...

More than one fifth of American preschool-aged children are classified as overweight/obese. Increasing physical activity is one means of slowing/reversing progression to overweight or obesity. Measurement of physical activity in this age group relies heavily on motion sensors such as accelerometers. Output is typically interpreted through applicati...

This study investigated the impact of renovation and redesign of a university preschool's outdoor space on children's sedentary behavior, light activity, and moderate-to-vigorous-physical-activity (MVPA) during unstructured recess. Physical activity was measured by accelerometry and direct observation in two independent samples of 50 (baseline) and...
Article
Full-text available
Background: Increasing moderate-to-vigorous-intensity physical activity (MVPA) is an important public health goal. Pedometers are evidence-based devices for increasing daily activity, but studies have not evaluated the comparative efficacy of step cadence goals for increasing MVPA. Purpose: This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of three pedo...

Curriculum interventions aimed at increasing physical activity in schools may prove useful in contexts where changes in policy/environment are not feasible. Design/evaluation of interventions targeting minority groups is important in light of well-publicized health disparities. Religious minorities represent a special subset that may positively res...

Despite frequent use of pedometers in interventions targeting youth PA, there is no literature that addresses the prevalence and reasons for protocol nonadherence. Adherence behaviors of early adolescents (n = 43; Meanage = 12.3 ± 1.0) in an 8-week, faith-based intervention were monitored/recorded. Students provided reasons for various aspects of p...

Evidence suggests that Latina women appear to be less physically active than women of other racial/ethnic groups. This study evaluated how different domains of physical activity (PA) contributed to overall levels of PA among low-income Latinas, the validity of Latinas' self-reported PA, and potential moderators of self-report bias in PA. A communit...

Cette recherche vise à : (a) déterminer si la combinaison d’une composante orientée sur les processus automatiques (i.e., logiciel d’alertes) et une orientée vers les processus intentionnels (i.e., éducationnelle) est efficace pour réduire la sédentarité et (b) si ces changements s’accompagnent d’une modification des niveaux d’automaticité. This research aims to : (a) determine whether the combination of an automatic process-oriented component (i.e., alerting software) and an intentional process-oriented component (i.e., educational) is effective in reducing sedentary, and (b) whether these changes are accompanied by a change in the levels of automaticity.
