Go Girls! is a dance-based patient fitness support group offered by the University of Virginia Pediatric Endocrinology division in conjunction with the Center for Research in Reproduction and the Children's Fitness Clinic at the University of Virginia for girls. The goals of the program are to introduce girls to exercise in a fun, non-threatening environment, meet other girls, enable girls to discover and develop a personal enjoyment of exercise, and enable low-pressure interactions with medical care providers.
- Change in mean score for the PACES scale after 6-months of intervention [ Time Frame: Baseline and 6 months ]Enjoyment of exercise will be assessed by scores on the PACES modified for adolescent girls, which is scored on a scale of 1 to 5.
- Change in mean score for the PACES scale after 3-months of intervention [ Time Frame: Baseline and 3 months ]Enjoyment of exercise will be assessed by scores on the PACES modified for adolescent girls, which is scored on a scale of 1 to 5.
- Change in amounts of average daily moderate-vigorous exercise [ Time Frame: Baseline, 3 months, and 6 months ]Amounts of average daily moderate-vigorous exercise will be assessed by recall of previous week's exercise amounts spent doing moderate-vigorous physical activity.
- Change in amounts of average daily vigorous exercise [ Time Frame: Baseline, 3 months, and 6 months ]Amounts of average daily vigorous exercise will be assessed by recall of previous week's exercise amounts spent doing vigorous physical activity
- Changes in attitudes about exercise [ Time Frame: Baseline, 3 months, 6 months ]Responses will be compiled into descriptive summaries/themes of girls' attitudes before, during, and after the intervention
- Changes in anthropometric and biochemical indices of metabolism and possible PCOS [ Time Frame: Baseline, 3 months, 6 months ]We will be assessing changes in blood pressure, body mass index total and percentile-for-age, waist circumference, serum markers of androgen excess and/or PCOS (free testosterone calculated from total testosterone and sex hormone binding globulin, dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate, and luteinizing hormone: follicle stimulation hormone ratio), serum markers of insulin resistance (insulin, glucose, HbA1c), and lipid abnormalities (HDL, LDL, triglycerides)
