About

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of 8-week online delivered exercise program on actual and perceived physical fitness components.

Full description

Physical fitness is one of the leading concepts of health and well-being at all stages of life. In certain context, individuals tend to engage in prolonged sedentary behaviors, and these contexts are considered sedentary-promoting environments. These environments also detrimental on physical fitness and health. University students and office workers who predominantly engage in sedentary behaviors, such as prolonged sitting and computer-based work, have consistently shown associations with various aspects of diminished physical fitness. The online intervention protocols might be a good alternative for increasing fitness level for those who live or work in highly sedentary settings. Hence, the purpose of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of 8-week online delivered exercise program on actual and perceived physical fitness components. Specifically, body composition measured by DXA, upper body muscular strength, and flexibility are the main focus of this study. Moreover, physical self-perception is also a focus of this study.
