Female carriers as well as healthy age and gender matched individuals will participate in an exercise paradigm.
Behavioral: exercise training
The exercise program uses a local Curves® gym to provide an individualized program of strength and cardiovascular training. The program is expected to be performed for 45 minutes 4-6 days per week.
- Change in maximal voluntary contraction of the hip flexors from baseline to end of training and to post-training [ Time Frame: Participants are assessed at baseline (visit 1, enrollment), end of training (visit 2, week 12) and post-training (visit 3, week 18). ]Here, we will assess whether the degree of a person's white matter integrity (i.e. for tracts of interest as measured from MRI) predicts their ability to benefit from exercise. Our prediction is that those individuals with preserved white matter integrity will show the greatest improvement in hip flexor strength.
