Experimental: Arm 1
Resistance exercise training
Behavioral: Resistance Exercise Training
16 weeks of resistance exercise training for the treatment of chronic muscle pain compared to wait-list control
No Intervention: Arm 2
- Symptoms [ Time Frame: Baseline, during 16 weeks of exercise and 6 and 12 months post exercise ]Symptoms are quantified with a review of participants' CPRS records and the repeated administration of self-report questionnaire batteries.
- Physical Activity [ Time Frame: Baseline, during 16 weeks of exercise and 6 and 12 months post exercise ]Physical activity is measured via accelerometer and self-report questionnaires.
- Brain Structure and Function [ Time Frame: Baseline, during 16 weeks of exercise and 6 and 12 months post exercise ]Brain structure and function data are gathered using a 3-Tesla MRI scanner over the course of six sessions.
