Appetite and energy intake may be reduced following high-
intensity intermittent exercise (HIIE). Yet, exploring such eating behaviour responses at pre-determined time points post-exercise restricts the eco-logical validity. In addition, the requirement of specialised apparatus
questions the effectiveness of many HIIE protocols for public health interventions. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate participant-determined eating behaviour in response to a previously studied protocol, of 2x30 seconds or 4x30 seconds, of apparatus-free HIIE (star
jumps) in inactive, overweight females.
Twelve inactive, overweight females will complete three conditions in a randomised, counterbalanced manner. Recruitment and data approach has involved patients, healthcare professionals and community
physical activity providers in the development of a physical activity pathway for the prevention and management of long-term conditions.
The co-design process included interviews with users, devel
opment of patient personas, storyboarding and prototyping a physical activity pathway. A case study approach explored how the co-designed physical activity pathway might be implemented in the NHS MSK physiotherapy service in
Components of the pathway included priming patients prior to their appointment to normalise physical activity within the consultation, and feedback from providers to positively reinforce healthcare profesionals, referral behaviours. Staff from MSK physiotherapy suggested that the co-designed pathway reflected a model of best practice, supported by
the benefits of co-location such as access to exercise facilities and collaboration between healthcare and exercise professionals.
Improvements are being made at NCSEM Sheffield venues
including the introduction of environmental prompts and streamlined appointment booking with providers. Further collaboration is ongoing with the MSK physiotherapy service to integrate the pathway into existing caseloads. In addition, a PhD programme is underway to evaluate the
health, social and economic impact of the co-located model.
