Translational research considers a range of sub-groups who may
have very different experiences of physical activity. When these differences
are found, they lead to work with those groups to tailor interventions to
reflect their experience. When there are more similarities than differences,
researchers can be more confident in a broader approach to intervention. This
work begins with a basic investigation of sub-groups and their experience of
physical activity. Frediani and colleagues embark on this with a study of South
Asian adults – a group that has been largely ignored in the physical activity
literature in the US.
The Translational Journal of The American College of Sports
Medicine welcomes articles that describe physical activity behavior across a
range of groups to inform physical activity interventions.
