Abstract

Women with negative body image engage in less physical activity. The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between body image and physical activity in Latinas participating in a lifestyle program. Participants (age 43.8 ± 10.1 years and BMI 30.4 ± 5.2 kg/m2) were enrolled in a 12-month culturally and linguistically adapted, individually tailored, intervention focused on increasing moderate-to-vigorous intensity physical activity (MVPA). Longitudinal assessments were conducted on body image dissatisfaction (BID) using the Figure Rating Scale, MVPA using the 7-day PAR interview, and objectively measured body weight. Pre-intervention BID did not significantly predict MVPA change. Participants experienced considerable reduction in BID. Greater MVPA engagement and weight loss were independently related to BID reduction. Acculturation did not moderate these relationships. Body image improved in Latinas participating in a cognitive and behavioral physical activity intervention regardless of weight loss and acculturation level.
