Protocol - Total Physical Activity - Comprehensive - Older Adult

Add to My Toolkit
Description:

The participant is asked to recall physical activities he/she engaged in during the last 4 weeks. The self-administered questionnaire addresses specific activities and asks whether the person has engaged in the activity. If the participant has engaged in the activity, he/she is instructed to answer how many times a week and how many hours total in the week. The Community Health Activity Models Program for Seniors (CHAMPS) codebook is used to score the results and determine the calories expended per week and hours per week engaged in physical activity.

Protocol:

CHAMPS Activities Questionnaire for Older Adults

This questionnaire is about activities that you may have done in the past 4 weeks. The questions on the following pages are similar to the example shown below.

INSTRUCTIONS

If you DID the activity in the past 4 weeks:

Step #1 Check the YES box.

Step #2 Think about how many TIMES a week you usually did it, and write your response in the space provided.

Step #3 Circle how many TOTAL HOURS in a typical week you did the activity.

Here is an example of how Mrs. Jones would answer question #1: Mrs. Jones usually visits her friends Maria and Olga twice a week. She usually spends one hour on Monday with Maria and two hours on Wednesday with Olga. Therefore, the total hours a week that she visits with friends is 3 hours a week.

Scoring

Data from the questionnaire are used to determine frequency per week and estimated caloric expenditure per week from physical activity. Separate scores are derived for physical activities of moderate or greater intensity (metabolic equivalents MET ≥ 3.0) and for all specified activities including those of light and moderate or greater intensity. For each of these, scores are calculated for frequency per week and estimated caloric expenditure per week.

Estimated caloric expenditures were calculated by multiplying the estimated duration per week by the MET value for each activity and summing across all relevant activities. Frequency per week is calculated by summing the frequency per week across all relevant activities. Detailed formulas are found in Table A1.

MET values were assigned to each activity from the values reported by Ainsworth et al. 1993. If an activity did not appear in the Ainsworth et al. compendium, the activity was assigned a value based on similar activities. The MET values for CHAMPS activities appear in Table A2.*

*Table A2 may be found in the appendix of the following source.

Coding Algorithms

Caloric expenditure/week in all exercise-related activities1

7, 9, 10, 14-16, 19-35, 36, 40

For each activity:

1. Create new duration variables for each activity recoded as follows: 1=0.5, 2=1.75, 3=3.75, 4=5.75, 5=7.75, 6=9.75; If duration variable is not answered, score = 0. Duration is hours/week.

2. For each recoded duration variable, create new weighted duration variable for each activity by multiplying duration variable (#1) by corresponding MET value.

3. For each weighted duration variable, create caloric expenditure per week variable for each activity by multiplying weighted duration variable (#2) by 3.5 and by 60 (to convert METs/minute to METs/hour) and by (weight in kg/200).

4. Sum caloric expenditure per week variables across activities to create caloric expenditure/week.

Caloric expenditure/week in moderate intensity exercise-related activities

7, 9, 14-16, 19, 21, 23-26, 29-33, 36-38, 40

Same as above, subset of activities with MET values >3.0.

Frequency/week of all exercise-related activities

7, 9, 10, 14-16, 19-35, 36, 40

SUM frequency scores/week for each of the activities (allow those with missing data on frequency to be included in the sum).

Frequency/week of moderate intensity exercise-related activities

7, 9, 14-16, 19, 21, 23-26, 29-33, 36-38, 40

SUM frequency scores/week for each of the activities (allow those with missing data on frequency to be included in the sum).

1Based on American College of Sports Medicine formula: kcal/minute = METs * 3.5 * (body weight in kg/200). Our formula converts this into kcal/week.
