This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Conditions||overweight, obesity, physical activity|
|Treatments||aerobic exercise, resistance exercise, sedentary option|
|Sponsor||USDA Grand Forks Human Nutrition Research Center|
|Start date||April 2015|
|End date||November 2015|
|Trial size||80 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT02416882, GFHNRC405|
This study tests whether different physical activity patterns are linked an individual's genes.
|Intervention model||crossover assignment|
Relative Reinforcing Value (RRV) of Exercise as assessed by indicator (Subjects will sample and rate their liking of exercise)
time frame: 2 weeks
All participants from 18 years up to 50 years old.
Inclusion Criteria: - BMI within 18.5-35.0 kg/m2 - Healthy enough to exercise - Active or inactive (not exercising at this time) Exclusion Criteria: - Taking any drugs that affect energy expenditure (e.g., thyroid, glucose-lowering drugs) - Have gained or lost more than 5% of body weight over the past 6 months - Use tobacco - Pregnant or lactating or plan to become pregnant in the next 6 months - Have any health conditions that prevent the individual from safely exercising (e.g., cardiovascular, liver, endocrine, or pulmonary diseases)
|Official title||Exercise Genes: Genomic Association With Exercise Reinforcement|
|Principal investigator||James N Roemmich, PhD|
|Description||The investigators propose that an individual's genetics are one factor that may be associated with the motivating aspect or attractiveness of exercise and therefore the choice to exercise rather than be sedentary. They propose to study the association of the genomic signatures with the reinforcing (motivating) value of different types of exercise. This has never been investigated and may uncover underlying mechanisms that would help to understand individual differences in exercise motivation. The ultimate impact of this work is a greater number of Americans being physically active, meeting the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) dietary guidelines for physical activity, and maintaining a healthy body weight. This study will be funded and undertaken at the Grand Forks Human Nutrition Research Center (GFHNRC). The purpose will be to assess genetic underpinnings of the motivating value of resistance and aerobic exercise, and to determine whether the motivating value of aerobic and resistance exercise are associated with usual participation in these modes of exercise.|
