Trajectories and predictors of steps in a worksite intervention: ASUKI-step
2015 (English)In: Health Behavior & Policy Review, ISSN 2326-4403, Vol. 2, no 1, 46-61 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Objectives: We evaluated the trajectory of steps over time, success in walking 10,000 steps/day for 100 days, and socio-demographic predictors of success in a pedometer-based intervention (ASUKI-Step).
Methods: A single-group, pre-post quasi-experimental design was used. Participants were university employees in Arizona (N = 712) and Sweden (N = 1390). Linear growth models and logistic regression were used to assess the trajectories of change in steps and the predictors of meeting the step standard, respectively.
Results: Linear and curvilinear changes in steps occurred over time with individual variation in the trajectories of change (p < .01). Half of the participants (52.9%) accumulated 10,000 steps for 100 days. No changes were observed for accelerometer-derived minutes of activity.
Conclusions: Individually tailoring pedometer-based interventions may enhance success.
