  2. PA, physical functioning and disability risk in mobility-limited older adults
    2017 - USA

    Greater changes in physical activity behavior measured objectively were associated with clinically meaningful improvements in physical functioning and reductions in the development of major...

  3. Physical activity could combat fatigue, cognitive decline in cancer survivors
    2017 - USA

    MVPA may be associated with greater executive function and working memory in BCSs. Further, this effect may be partially indirect through cancer-related symptoms (e.g., fatigue).

  4. Urban forests:Conservation strategy to increase ecosystem services & urban wellbein
    2017 - USA

    Planting more trees in potential tree cover areas could nearly double the benefits provided by the urban forest.

  5. Circuit resistance training effective to enhance muscle older & middle age
    2017 - USA

    CRT is a valid alternative to conventional RT. Its shorter duration and lower intensity relative to traditional RT, may increase adherence to training in older adults.

  6. BMI, Waist Circumference, Physical Activity, and Risk of Hearing Loss in Women
    2013 - USA

    Higher BMI and larger waist circumference are associated with increased risk, and higher physical activity is associated with reduced risk of hearing loss in women.

  7. Effects of PA on fatigue & cognitive performance in breast cancer survivors
    2017 - USA

    MVPA may be associated with greater executive function and working memory in BCSs. Further, this effect may be partially indirect through cancer-related symptoms (e.g., fatigue). Results emphasize...

  8. Effects of resistance training on cardiovascular function in PD patients
    USA

    Progressive RT improved cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction in patients with Parkinson's Disease.

  9. The economic benefits of Plano’s park and recreation system
    2017 - USA

    This study illustrates that parks, trails, recreation centers, and sports fields in Plano are key economic drivers that contribute millions in economic benefits annually to the city as a whole.

  10. MPA Associated with Cerebral Glucose Metabolism in Adults
    USA

    People at risk for Alzheimer's disease who do more moderate-intensity physical activity, but not light-intensity physical activity, are more likely to have healthy patterns of glucose metabolism in...

  11. Moderators of Exercise Effects on Depressive Symptoms in Multiple Sclerosis: A Meta-regression
    2017 - USA

    Exercise significantly improves depressive symptoms among people with multiple sclerosis.

  12. Physical activity and Disability in Older Adults
    2017 - USA

    A structured physical activity intervention reduces reported severe mobility disability and difficulty on mobility tasks in older adults with functional limitations.

  13. Physical Activity Slows Biological Aging
    2017 - USA

    A low amount of physical activity appeared to create a biological age gap of eight years between those women who exercised and those that did not.
