Physical Activity Preferences Among Older Adults: A Systematic Review

Steve Amireault, John M. Baier, and Jonathan R. Spencer

participation among older adults is both relevant and timely. To this end, preferences for physical activity should be integrated across all key behavioral or exercise program components. This study reviews the preferences for physical activity in adults aged 65 years and older. The term “preferences for

A Comparison of Wrist- Versus Hip-Worn ActiGraph Sensors for Assessing Physical Activity in Adults: A Systematic Review

Nolan Gall, Ruopeng Sun, and Matthew Smuck

Nutrition Examination Survey is not comparable to prior National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey cycles using hip-worn sensors, creating serious challenges for cross-study comparison. A recent review by Migueles et al. ( 2017 ) compared the ability to classify PA and step counts between hip and

Interventions to Increase Physical Activity in Children Aged 2-5 Years: A Systematic Review

Jiying Ling, Lorraine B. Robbins, Fujun Wen, and Wei Peng

Comprehensive evaluation of prior interventions designed to increase preschoolers’ physical activity is lacking. This systematic review aimed to examine the effect of interventions on objectively measured physical activity in children aged 2–5 years. We followed the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses statement. In May 2014, we searched PubMed, CINAHL, PsycINFO, ERIC, SPORTDiscus, Cochrane, and Embase. Two reviewers independently identified and appraised the studies. Twenty-four articles describing 23 independent studies and 20 unique interventions met inclusion criteria. Of the 8 interventions resulting in a significant effect in objectively measured physical activity, all were center-based and included a structured physical activity component, 6 included multiple components, 5 integrated theories or models, and 4 actively involved parents. Seven of the 8 were randomized controlled trials. Due to the heterogeneity of the study designs, physical activity measures, and interventions, drawing definitive conclusions was difficult. Although the overall intervention effect was less than optimal, the review indicated that theory-driven, multicomponent interventions including a structured physical activity component and targeting both parents and their children may be a promising approach for increasing preschoolers’ physical activity and warrant continued investigation using rigorous designs to identify those that are most effective.

How Sedentary Are Older People? A Systematic Review of the Amount of Sedentary Behavior

Juliet A. Harvey, Sebastien F.M. Chastin, and Dawn A. Skelton


Sedentary behavior (SB), defined as sitting (nonexercising), reclining, and lying down (posture), or by low energy expenditure, is a public health risk independent to physical activity. The objective of this systematic literature review was to synthesize the available evidence on amount of SB reported by and measured in older adults.

Data source:

Studies published between 1981 and 2014 were identified from electronic databases and manual searching. Large-scale population studies/surveys reporting the amount of SB (objective/subjective) in older adults aged ≥ 60 years of age were included. Appraisal and synthesis was completed using MOOSE guidelines.


349,698 adults aged ≥ 60 within 22 studies (10 countries and 1 EU-wide) were included. Objective measurement of SB shows that older adults spend an average of 9.4 hr a day sedentary, equating to 65–80% of their waking day. Self-report of SB is lower, with average weighted self-reports being 5.3 hr daily. Within specific domains of SB, older adults report 3.3 hr in leisure sitting time and 3.3 hr watching TV. There is an association with more time spent in SB as age advances and a trend for older men to spend more time in SB than women.


Time spent sedentary ranges from 5.3–9.4 hr per waking day in older adults. With recent studies suggesting a link between SB, health, and well-being, independent of physical activity, this is an area important for successful aging.


Different methodologies of measurement and different reporting methods of SB made synthesis difficult. Estimated SB time from self-report is half of that measured objectively; suggesting that most self-report surveys of SB will vastly underestimate the actual time spent in SB.

A Reflection on the State of Sport Coaching Research, Its Community, and Representation: The 2020 International Council for Coaching Excellence Research Committee Consultation

Julian North, Bettina Callary, Kristen Dieffenbach, Larissa Galatti, Sergio Lara-Bercial, Christine Nash, and Donna O’Connor

Trudel ( 2004 ) suggested that there were around 600 articles published between 1970 and 2001, with an increasing annual rate of publication. Review work by Rangeon, Gilbert, and Bruner ( 2012 ) suggested that around 70 research articles within the coaching discipline are published every year. In the
