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.
