The aims of the study: Main objective of the current study is to decrease sedentary behavior and increase physical activity among mothers and their offspring by using music-to-movement video program. Primary outcomes of the study are objectively assessed sedentary behavior and physical activity time measured both in minutes and as a proportion of measurement time. Secondary outcomes of the study are quantity and quality of self-reported screen time among mothers and children and motivational quality of music and music-to-movement video. Additional secondary outcomes are mother's weight, workability, mental health and mood. Specific aim is to study effectiveness of intervention with accelerometer use only or with a combination of accelerometer plus music-to-movement video program for mother-child pairs.
Materials and methods: Participants (mother and child -pairs) of the Movement-to-music video program (Moving Sound) -study will be recruited from the cohort of the original Lifestyle, counselling and exercise in maternity care (NELLI) -project from 14 municipalities of Pirkanmaa area. Participants will be randomized in two groups: accelerometer (ACC) vs. accelerometer plus movement-to-music video program (ACC+DVD) groups. Objective measurement of sedentariness and physical activity is based on accelerometer. Information on current health behavior will be based on intervention questionnaires. In the analysis physical activity, sedentary time and body weight of the intervention and control group will be compared. Effects of mother's musical (and PA) background and other mediating factors will be analyzed separately in subgroup analyses.

|Official Title:||Movement-to-music Video Program in Decreasing Sedentary Time in Mothers and Children: a Randomized Controlled Trial|
|Study Start Date :||November 2014|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||April 2016|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||April 2016|
Three movement-to-music video programs will be used by the participants. First and second videos last about 10 minutes including two songs and their movement preparation. The use of movement-to-music video program will be instructed 10-30 minutes every other day.
Behavioral: Movement-to-music video program
Three separate movement-to-music video programs will be utilized. Genres of the songs are Children's rock, latin and folk. Range of the tempo is 64-124 beats per minute. The use of movement-to-music video program will be instructed 10-30 minutes every other day.
No Intervention: No movement-to-music
Another group will not receive movement-to-music video during intervention. However, their physical activity will be objectively measured as well.
- Sedentary lifestyle [ Time Frame: Baseline, 8th week ]Objective measurement of sedentary lifestyle with accelerometer; change from baseline in sedentary lifestyle at 8th week
- Screen-time [ Time Frame: baseline, 8th week ]self-reported quantity and quality of screen time
- Motivational quality of music-to-movement video [ Time Frame: baseline, 8th week ]Self-reports on questionnaire related to music-to-movement video
- Workability [ Time Frame: baseline ]Mother's workability, including mental health and mood will be based on self-reported responses to questionnaire
