          Abstract

          Females exhibit lower levels of physical exercise performance than males. It seems that gender factor motivates people differently, in performing regular exercise. Our objective was to determine the relationship between 21 motivating reasons for performing physical exercise and genders. We found that males showed significantly higher means score in two motivating reasons; to have a positive effect on the sex life (4.18±1.01, p<0.001) and to have more energy to go about the daily chores (4.62± .63, p= 0.027). No significant gender difference in the mean score for the other 19 motivating reasons. Conclusion: Both sexes were almost equally motivated in performing physical exercises

            Relationship of vigorous physical activity to psychologic distress among adolescents.

            This article examines the relationship between vigorous physical activity and psychologic distress (by using the General Health Questionnaire-12) among a sample of 2,104 adolescents. Multiple regression analysis revealed a differential relationship between physical activity and dimensions of the General Health Questionnaire-12. Specifically, vigorous physical activity was related significantly to problems with social functioning but not to depression or anxiety.

              Influence of regular exercise on subjective sense of burden and physical symptoms in community-dwelling caregivers of dementia patients: a randomized controlled trial.

              With an aim to improve quality of life in caregivers of dementia patients, we examined the effect of regular exercise on caregivers' sense of burden and their physical symptoms. Participants were 31 elderly caregivers living with older patients diagnosed with Alzheimer's-type dementia. They were randomly assigned to either the intervention group, who were prescribed regular exercise with moderate-intensity: 3 metabolic equivalents (3METs), 3 times per week for 12 weeks, or the control group, who did not receive any prescription. In the intervention group, significant reductions in the Zarit caregiver burden interview (ZBI) score and in the frequency of feeling fatigued, and an improvement in quality of sleep were observed at follow-up (p < 0.05), while no such changes were observed in the control group. These results suggest that obtaining sustainable habit of moderate exercise may improve quality of life in caregivers of demented patients.
