Physical Activity Protects Against the Health Risks of Obesity by Greg Welk( )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper reviews the relationships between physical fitness and body composition and their combined effect on health. After discussing the epidemiologic evidence for a protective effect of physical fitness on the health risks associated with obesity, it describes the Aerobics Center Longitudinal Study, an ongoing observational study that provides data on the relationships between physical fitness and a variety of health outcomes, as well as other studies. Epidemiologic evidence demonstrates a strong protective effect for physical activity and physical fitness on the health risks associated with obesity. Probable mechanisms for the protective effect of physical activity include the reduction and/or reversal of the development of a progressive disease process known as insulin-resistance syndrome, which is closely associated with obesity. A major benefit of physical activity is that it leads to specific reductions in levels of abdominal obesity and induces beneficial metabolic changes that limit the underlying disease process related to fat and dyslipidemia, hypertension, hyperinsulinemia, reduced glucose sensitivity, and ultimately non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus. Overall, research suggests that the health risks of obesity are largely controlled if a person is physically active and physically fit. (Contains 28 references.) (Sm)

Promoting physical activity in children : parental influences by Greg Welk( )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Children of active parents tend to be more active. This Digest describes the various socialization factors that influence a child's interest and involvement in physical activity. While role modeling exerts some effect, recent research suggests that the nature of parental influence may be much more complex. A useful theoretical model to explain parental influence on physical activity is the expectancy-value model of Eccles and Harold (1991). The model explains parent socialization behaviors related to sport and physical activity. There are various ways that parents can socialize their children to be physically active, including using parental encouragement, parental involvement, parental facilitation, and parental role modeling. Declining levels of physical activity exert a major influence on the increasing levels of childhood obesity. It is important for children to begin developing healthy activity patterns early in life. Because activity patterns have been found to track over the lifespan, efforts to promote physical activity at a young age can have major long-term public health benefits. (Contains 16 references.)
