Brief Summary:
The propose of the study is to test the hypothesis that an eight week program consisting of walking exercise and social cognitive theory based group workshops will increase physical activity adherence six months later in older adults with type 2 diabetes or metabolic syndrome.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Diabetes Type 2 Metabolic Syndrome Behavioral: Walking exercise Not Applicable

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 125 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Social Cognitive and Neuropsychological Influences on Physical Activity Behavior in Type II Diabetes
Study Start Date : January 2013
Actual Primary Completion Date : December 2013
Actual Study Completion Date : May 2014

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Walking exercise
Participants will be instructed in safe walking exercise. They will participate in an eight week, tapered, on-site program. Participants will also attend group workshops where they will learn self-regulatory skills such as goal-setting, self-monitoring, barrier trouble-shooting, rewarding, and relapse prevention and recovery.
Behavioral: Walking exercise
Active Comparator: Metabolic health education
Participants will complete an eight-week online metabolic health education course. Topics will include glucose control, insulin, weight management, nutrition, physical activity, eye/kidney/foot health, stress reduction, and doctor-patient communication.
Behavioral: Walking exercise

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Physical Activity [ Time Frame: Month 6 ]
    Change from baseline to month six in physical activity. Participants will wear an accelerometer to measure physical activity.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Self-efficacy [ Time Frame: Month 6 ]
    We will assess changes in self-efficacy by written questionnaires.

  2. Executive function [ Time Frame: Month 6 ]
    Participants will complete a neuropsychological battery of tasks assessing memory, attention and decision-making at baseline and month six.

  3. Self-regulatory strategy use [ Time Frame: Month 6 ]
    We will assess changes in self-regulatory strategy use by written questionnaires.

  4. Physical function [ Time Frame: Month 6 ]
    We will conduct functional fitness testing including tests of balance, strength, mobility and flexibility at baseline and six months.

  5. Psychosocial outcomes [ Time Frame: Month 6 ]
    We will assess changes in psychosocial function ( e.g. self-esteem; social support; anxiety) by written questionnaires.
