Experimental: Active Lifestyle Programme
Supervised exercises for 3 months and motivational interviewing to facilitate physical activity behaviour change. Supervised exercise sessions took place twice per week for the first four weeks. This was tapered off to once per week for the second four weeks. During the last month of the intervention participants continued with the exercise at home and were encouraged to achieve 150min of moderate to vigorous PA per week.
Behavioral: Active lifestyle programme
The intervention is an activity lifestyle programme to increase physical activity behaviour post-intervention and to facilitate behaviour change maintenance at 3 months post-intervention.
Other Name: MOVE
No Intervention: Standard Care
Received usual care. Was offered the intervention after the completion of the study.
This study was a randomized controlled feasibility trial consisting of a 3-months active lifestyle intervention and a 3-months follow-up period. Participants were allocated to an active lifestyle programme (ALP) or the standard (SC) care group. ALP was offered 12 supervised exercise sessions over 3 months and six supportive behaviour change workshops. SC was encouraged to continue with their usual lifestyle. The intervention was informed by Self-Determination Theory.
The supervised exercise sessions took place in small groups of maximum 7 participants and lasted approximately 1 hour. Exercise included aerobic and resistance exercises. The behaviour change workshops were delivered in a motivational interviewing style, also in small groups of maximum 7 participants.
Participants were followed-up at 6 months. There was no contact with participants during the post-intervention and follow-up period.
