Health professionals are able to motivate even the most inactive people to increase the amount of exercise they get, says a study.
But researchers found that exercise advice had to be tailored to individual needs to have the desired effect. Adopting a “one size fits all” policy is not as effective as the personalized approach.
With the right advice, however, people with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome can be motivated to exercise enough via walking to enjoy significant health benefits such as reducing the risk of developing heart disease, Diabetes and some cancers.
Dr. David Ogilvie, lead author of a Scottish study featured in the British Medical Journal, says people should be offered a range of options to encourage them to walk regularly.
Face-to-face advice from healthcare professionals could be useful in enabling patients’ needs to be assessed and individual advice given in response. Some people might also find group discussions about exercise to be motivating, especially in connection with the benefits of PCOS weight loss to health and general well-being.
“We can’t point to a silver bullet that will promote walking for everyone, but we have found evidence that different approaches can be effective,” added Dr. Ogilvie.
