start of 1:1-Block public summary

Brief Summary in Lay Language

Especially in western countries such as Austria or Germany there are a lot of people, who are insufficiently physically active according to current guidelines. Such people are classified as “physically inactive”. Scientists have observed that there is an association between physical activity and physical literacy. This means, the higher a person’s physical literacy level, the higher a person’s physical activity level. Physical literacy given as a complex and multidimensional model comprises a person’s physical activity behaviour, motivation, attitude, knowledge and self-confidence and self-efficacy towards physical activity. In that context, however, it is still not investigated if it is possible to promote physical literacy through physical exercise interventions (strength-based and endurance-based training) among physically inactive adults. Hence, the aim of this study is to investigate the effect of a physical exercise intervention on physical literacy among physically inactive adults. It is assumed that physical exercise interventions would ameliorate a person’s physical literacy level.

Brief Summary in Scientific Language

Especially in western countries, the current global pandemic of physical inactivity is a major public health challenge. Evidence has shown that there is an association between physical activity and physical literacy. Physical literacy given as a holistic construct comprises a person’s physical activity behaviour, motivation, attitude, knowledge and self-confidence and self-efficacy towards physical activity. However, it is still not investigated if it is possible to promote physical literacy through physical exercise interventions (strength-based and endurance-based training) among physically inactive adults. Hence, the primary aim of this prospective case-control study is to investigate the effect of a physical exercise intervention on physical literacy among physically inactive adults. It is hypothesised that physical exercise interventions would ameliorate a person’s physical literacy level.

Primary Outcome

Physical literacy is measured by a questionnaire in both groups (case group/control group) at study baseline and after the 15weeks lasting phyiscal exercise intervention periode (follwo-up). Thereby, the questionaire to measure physical literacy (80 items) was redesigned, consisting of valid and reliable questionnaire subscales covering the domains of the holistic physical literacy model. Questionnaire subscales were adopted from the questionairs as follows: SMS28, SIMS, BREQ-2, FKB-20, Stanford Five City Study questionnaire, IPAQ-SF.
