Abstract

Interventions that focus on increasing physical activity in Hispanic women require consideration of moderators that affect intervention outcomes. The purpose of this article is to review intervention and descriptive research that describe salient moderators that have an impact on treatment (intervention) effects and to focus on Hispanic women as an at-risk, understudied segment of our population. Computerized searches were conducted from 1997 to 2007 for articles that assessed physical activity behavior(s) as an outcome of the research. Twenty-two research reports included in this review were analyzed in terms of intrapersonal, interpersonal, and community-level factors. Age, socioeconomic factors, and martial status influence physical activity, and the most salient moderator on physical activity in Hispanic women is social support influence from both friends and family.
