Spanish Exercise Behaviors
Durante la semana pasada, aún si no fue una semana normal, ¿cuánto tiempo en total usó (en toda la semana) en cada de las siguientes actividades? (Por favor marque una respuesta para cada frase.)
Code each item as the number circled, then covert as follows. If two consecutive numbers are circled, code the lower number (less exercise). If two non-consecutive numbers are circled, do not score the item. For "otro ejercicio aeróbico" (other aerobic), try to fit the type of exercise into the existing aerobic categories (i.e., treadmill as "máquinas para ejercicios" (other aerobic equipment), otherwise leave as "otro ejercicio aeróbico" (i.e., "dancing"). However, if exercise that is not aerobic, such as yoga or weight training, do not score as aerobic. Yoga, weight training, tai chi, etc., should be scored as "stretching or strengthening".
Each category is converted to the number of minutes below. Time spent in stretching or strengthening is the value for item 1. Time spent in aerobic exercise is the sum of the values for items 2 through 6.
Stretching/strengthening (minutes/week) tested on 270 Spanish-speaking subjects. N=25 for test-retest.
Aerobic exercise (minutes/week) tested on 270 subjects. N=25 for test-retest.

We have used this scale to measure both aerobic and a combination of stretching strengthening exercise for many years.
