Background and purpose For a few years, the Department of Sport and Rehabilitation Sciences of the University of Liege has organized physical activity (PA) promotion events for overweight children and adolescents. One of the biggest difficulties has always been a lack of adherence and participation in these activities. According to the Self‐determination Theory, exercise programs designed to satisfy the need for autonomy, competence and relatedness might increase PA adherence and promote a long‐lasting active lifestyle (Deforche, Haerens & Bourdeaudhuij, 2011). The first purpose of this study was to implement a project aiming to promote physical activity in overweight adolescents. It consisted in 2 series of 8 collective PA sessions, leading to a team participation in a public charity sport event. The sessions included aerobic and resistance exercises as well as educational content. This study also aimed to evaluate the motivation of the participants for this project and its impact on their lifestyle. Methods 15 overweight adolescents voluntarily participated in this study (aged 12 to 18 years). Data were collected using a questionnaire and interviews before and after the program. A short questionnaire was also completed by the participants and the instructor at the end of each PA session. Results After the first 8 sessions, no dropout has been observed and the attendance rate reached 79.2%. Moreover, the motivation level of the participants regarding the sessions seemed high. On a scale of 0 to 5, it reached an average of 3.71+-0.49 and 4.17+- 1.3, from the point of view of the instructor and the participants, respectively. Conclusions and implications These preliminary findings are encouraging to continue with the project. Future data will allow us to analyze the evolution of motivation and adherence of the participants through the program and to evaluate its impact on PA habits of the participants. [less ▲]

Background and purpose Literature suggests that health professionals (HPs) can play an important role in promoting physical activity (PA) in cancer patients (Jones et al., 2004). This study had three purposes: (1) analyzing HPs’ knowledge and opinion about PA for cancer patients; (2) examining practices, barriers and roles that they identify when considering PA promotion in their patients; (3) determining factors that may enhance practices in this field. Methods This study comprised two phases. The first phase had a qualitative approach: 12 HPs participated in a semi-structured interview about their views and practices regarding PA promotion in cancer patients. The second phase used a quantitative approach: based on the findings of the analysis of the interviews and on the relevant literature, an online questionnaire was created, tested and sent to professional health organizations, hospitals and medical centers involved in oncology. A total of 68 HPs participated in the survey. Results In both phases of the study, HPs seemed to be aware of the benefits of PA for cancer patients and considered that they have to play a role in promoting PA in that specific population. However, only 25% (n=17) of HPs were familiar with the official PA guidelines. According to our results, HPs discuss the topic of PA with more than 7 out of 10 patients (7.11 ± 2.61). Lack of time and lack of knowledge about PA were identified as barriers to PA promotion and lack of knowledge was associated with a lower rate of interventions. Conclusions and implications Our findings suggest that improving HPs’ knowledge about PA and how it can be proposed to cancer patients could help them to promote PA and to encourage their patients to consult a PA specialist. Such HPs’ professional development should be considered as an interesting topic for sport pedagogy specialists. [less ▲]

Introduction. Le projet « Dépasse-toi ! » consiste à impliquer des jeunes en surcharge pondérale dans l’organisation d’un événement « sportif » à destination de leurs proches. Une journée de découverte constituait la première étape de ce projet : participation à une après-midi d’activité physique suivie d’une discussion visant à élaborer collectivement l’événement à venir. Cette étude a pour but d’analyser le déroulement de cette journée et d’en évaluer l’impact sur la motivation des participants. Méthodologie. Un questionnaire pré-séance et deux questionnaires post-séance ont été soumis aux participants. Résultats. La majorité des participants était motivée par le projet en pré- et post-séance et 16 adolescents sur 18 envisageaient en post-séance de s’engager dans la suite du projet. Être impliqués dans l’organisation d’un tel projet semble donc source de motivation pour ces jeunes en surpoids. [less ▲]

Introduction The Belgian Foundation against Cancer proposes an adapted physical activity (APA) program for cancer patients and survivors, called Raviva (http://www.cancer.be/raviva-bouger-pour-se-sentir-mieux).The activities are supervised by instructors with inconstant trainings and experiences. Contrary to other countries, Belgian APA instructors do not necessarily need to follow specific education programs such those proposed by the ACSM (Schmitz et al., 2010) or other organizations that propose exercise guidelines for cancer survivors. The aim of this study was to identify good practices in APA for cancer patients and survivors concerning activity characteristics and instructors behaviors, from the point of view of the Raviva program participants. Methods Firstly, an online questionnaire was submitted to Raviva participants; 72 of them filled it in. Secondly, 3 video-stimulated recall interviews were conducted after 3 different Raviva sessions (fitness, yoga and aqua-aerobics), each time with another participant. Results and discussion The sessions characteristics that participants like the most are related to the choice and quality of the proposed exercises (22% of responses) and to the perceived benefits of the activities (20%). The most appreciated qualities for an instructor are related to his/her human qualities (43%) and his/her expertise (32%). What participants like least about the sessions is a poor organization (27%) and what they like least about the instructors is linked to bad choices of exercises (18%). The video-stimulated recall interviews confirmed these data and provided more precision. Finally, we noticed that differences in responses were observed depending on the type of activity participants took part in. These findings could help instructors adapt their practices to their participants’ needs in order to promote adherence to physical activity among this population. References Schmitz, K.

Introduction Raviva is a Belgian adapted physical activity (APA) program for cancer patients and survivors, developed by the Belgian Foundation against Cancer (http://www.cancer.be/aide-aux-patients/la-fondation-votre-service/raviva-bouger-pour-se-sentir-mieux). Activities supported by this foundation are supervised by instructors with inconstant trainings and experiences. Indeed, in Belgium, APA instructors do not necessarily follow specific training programs such those proposed by the ACSM (Schmitz et al., 2010). As it is the case in sport coaches’ education (Erickson et al., 2008), interacting with colleagues and sharing knowledge could be an interesting way to improve APA instructors’ competencies. The aim of this study was to plan and analyse interactive APA working groups, as part of a training day intended for all Raviva instructors. Methods As part of this training, we proposed three practical physical activity working groups, each one concerning a specific activity: fitness, relaxation and aqua-aerobics. They were designed to generate some good practices in intervention with Raviva groups and had to be interactive: all participants had the opportunity to present their own practices and to discuss and comment the practices of the others. Three methods were used to analyse the activities: interviews of the organizers (n=4), a questionnaire for all trainees (n=35) and participant observation. Results Many examples of practical situations and good practices have been identified.79.4% of the trainees considered that the proposed method was interesting and 88.3% mentioned that they have been actively involved. The organizers were less convinced as they highlighted a lack of ideas sharing as well as low active participation and dynamism. Observations confirmed the organizers’ opinions. Conclusions Participants appeared to be globally satisfied with the practical activities. However, further research is needed to measure the impact of such methods on their future practices.

Introduction The Belgian Foundation against Cancer proposes an adapted physical activity (APA) program for cancer patients and survivors, called Raviva (http://www.cancer.be/raviva-bouger-pour-se-sentir-mieux).The activities are supervised by instructors with inconstant trainings and experiences. Contrary to other countries, Belgian APA instructors do not necessarily need to follow specific education programs such those proposed by the ACSM (Schmitz et al., 2010).We were involved in the implementation of a specific training day for in-service Raviva instructors. As it is the case in sport coaches’ education (Erickson et al., 2008), interacting with colleagues seemed to be an appropriate method to improve APA instructors’ skills. Therefore, interactive methods were proposed to be used in order to increase the participants’ interest. The aim of this paper was to describe and analyse a poster presentation session as well as to identify good practices. Methods As part of the training day, the poster presentation session consisted to create groups of 4 to 5 persons and to ask them to imagine and share solutions to specific problems linked with psycho-emotional aspects of the instruction process with Raviva groups. Three methods were used to collect the data: interviews of the organizers (n=4), a questionnaire for all trainees (n=35) and participant observation. Results Examples of good practices were listed and exchanged between the participants. All trainees considered that the poster presentation session was interesting and most of them (94%) reported that appropriate themes were discussed. Moreover, 88.2% of the participants mentioned that they were able to share their experiences. Three expressed negative opinions about the organization. These opinions were supported by all organizers as well as by the observation. Conclusions This educational tool seems to be interesting. However, organizers should plan enough time for such activity. Moreover, the time allocation between each part of the session should be better prepared and controlled. [less ▲]

La littérature actuelle suggère qu’une meilleure connaissance en matière d’AP encouragerait à l’adoption d’un style de vie plus actif. L’objectif principal de cette étude était d’identifier les effets de trois interventions différentes sur la connaissance en matière d’AP chez les seniors d’une commune francophone belge. D’une durée de 3 mois, l’intervention se composait d’un site internet et d’un cours collectif. Quatre groupes de seniors provenant de la même commune ont été formés : contrôle (C), Internet (I), cours collectif (CC) et combiné (CCI). Des questionnaires ont été complétés par les participants avant l’intervention (T0), après l’intervention (T1) et après deux mois de suivi (T2). Une évolution significative des connaissances en matière d’AP a été constatée pour les groupe CCI et CC entre T0 et T2. L’intervention combinant un cours collectif ainsi qu’un outil Internet semble la plus efficace pour améliorer à court-terme les connaissances en matière d’AP chez les seniors. [less ▲]

Des outils basés sur un site internet sont efficaces pour promouvoir l’activité physique (AP) chez les seniors (Ammann et al., 2013). Cette étude avait pour but d’évaluer les effets de l’intervention « Bouger plus » sur la pratique d'AP de sujets de 50 ans et plus, au sein d’une commune. Quatre groupes ont reçu une intervention différente pendant trois mois : un site internet (I), un cours collectif (CC), une combinaison des deux (CCI) et pas d'intervention (CO). Des questionnaires ont permis d’évaluer les résultats. Ceux-ci montrent une évolution positive du stade de changement de comportement vis-à-vis de l’AP, au cours de l’intervention, pour les groupes I et CCI. De plus, le niveau de pratique est resté stable malgré la période hivernale pour les groupes CC et CCI alors qu’il a chuté pour le groupe CO. L’intervention a donc eu des effets positifs à court terme sur les comportements en matière d’AP, particulièrement quand le site internet et les cours collectifs étaient combinés. [less ▲]

Purpose. Recent research suggests that internet-based physical activity interventions can be suitable and effective, even for older adults. Besides, neighbourhood environment internet-based interventions are currently considered as more effective than traditional motivational interventions. Therefore, the main purpose of this study was to explore the effects of a neighbourhood environment internet-based intervention on physical activity behaviours of older adults. Methods. At baseline, 87 older adults (60.69 ± 7.85 years) from the same district were assigned to an intervention (n = 41) or a control (n = 46) group. The two months intervention was composed of a comprehensive physical activity promotion website, with an emphasis on neighbourhood environment contents, and a monthly personalized email based on the stage of change theory. Physical activity behaviours were assessed by the IPAQ short-form and the stage of change questionnaire at baseline, after one and two month of the intervention, and after one month follow-up. Results. Significant improvements were observed for the stage of change questionnaire in the intervention group from baseline to the end of the intervention (p = 0.003), they remained at follow-up (p = 0.012) while the control group remained unchanged. Physical activity level declined progressively in the control group as it remained constant in the intervention group, with as significant difference between groups after two months intervention (p = 0.027). Conclusions. These findings suggest that a neighbourhood environment internet-based intervention can improve physical activity behaviours in older adults. Further research on this topic is needed to examine longer term effects with larger sample. [less ▲]

Purpose. Developing, in a Belgian French-speaking community, an internet-based intervention to promote physical activity among adults over 50 years old. Determining which mediators of this intervention are the most used by participants and which mediators are the most useful to improve their physical activity level. Methods. At baseline, 87 older adults (60.69 ± 7.85 years) from the same district were assigned to two groups that have received the intervention. This intervention comprised a comprehensive physical activity promotion website, with an emphasis on neighbourhood environment contents, and a monthly personalized e-mail based on the stages of change theory. Assessment tools included a post-satisfaction questionnaire and the measure of the number of visits of each page of the website. Results. According to participants, all parts of the intervention were useful. Indeed, all components received a score above 3/6. The most useful parts of the website, according to participants, were the following topics: “Hiking trails maps” (4.46/6), “Set your goals” (4.14/6) and “Tips for beginning” (4.1/6). The most consulted pages of the website were the pages “My activity log” (163), “News” (137) and “Activity programs examples” (114). Conclusions. In future actions, all parts of this intervention could be preserved. However, some elements could be added, like an online forum or regular sessions of physical activity with a coach. [less ▲]

Purpose. Despite the numerous health benefits, population physical activity levels are low and decline with age. Few studies exposed that a better knowledge about physical activity could encourage people to become physically active, which constitute a critical health challenge for older people. Moreover, neighbourhood environment internet-based interventions are recommended to promote physical activity. Therefore, the main purpose of this study was to explore the effects of a neighbourhood environment internet-based intervention on knowledge about physical activity among older adults. Methods. At baseline, 87 older adults (60.69 ± 7.85 years) from the same district were assigned to an intervention (n = 41) or a control (n = 46) group. The two months intervention was composed of a comprehensive physical activity promotion website, with an emphasis on neighbourhood environment contents, and a monthly personalized email based on the stage of change theory. Physical activity knowledge was assessed by questionnaires at baseline, after one and two month of the intervention, and after one month follow-up. Results. After the intervention, knowledge of the physical activity recommendations significantly improved in the intervention group (p = 0.032), while the control group remained unchanged. Besides, knowledge about environmental opportunities for physical activity increased slightly only in the intervention group. Conclusions. These findings suggest that a neighbourhood environment internet-based intervention can result in modest improvements of the physical activity knowledge in older adults. Further research should focus on alternative ways to improve the knowledge about local opportunities for physical activity and its relationship with long term effects on behaviour change. [less ▲]
