Abstract OBJECTIVES: This study reports the social cognitive, health status, and health service use outcomes of an exercise intervention among women over 50 years of age. METHODS: A random sample of patients was drawn from two primary care centers that serve a predominantly low-income and African American population. After provider screen, 412 women were eligible and invited to participate in the study. Of these, 123 participated and 1-year follow-up data are available for 72 participants. RESULTS: Participants were more likely to be African American and had a higher average body weight than nonparticipants. Perceived health was the only variable that differed by adherence group at baseline. At 1 year, differences were apparent for body weight, body mass index, hip and waist circumference, triceps skinfold, and exercise self-esteem. The no-adherence group got worse, whereas the moderate adherence group improved. DISCUSSION: These data suggest that even suboptimal adherence to moderate-intensity exercise can yield health benefits
