Abstract

This quasi-experimental research aimed at investigating effects of a program promoting aerobic hula hoop exercise and nutritional education with social support on body mass index (BMI), waistline, and blood lipids in persons at risk of metabolic syndrome. The samples consisted of 38 persons at risk of metabolic syndrome. The research instruments included a program promoting aerobic hula hoop exercise, a guideline for nutritional education with social support, an equipment of aerobic hula hoop exercise, an equipment of health assessment, a questionnaire of demographic data, a recording form of health data, and a recording form of dietary intake and calculated daily energy. The implementation and data collection were conducted from June to October, 2013. Statistics used for data analysis included frequency, percentage, paired t-test, and repeated measure ANOVA with multiple comparisons by LSD.


The research results revealed that: 1) at week 8 and 12 after the program, personsat risk of metabolic syndrome had statistically significant lower average BMI than beforethe program (F = 1.358, p < .05 and F = 1.201, p < .05, respectively); 2) at week 4, 8, 12, and 16 after the program, persons at risk of metabolic syndrome had statistically significant lower average waistline than before the program (F = 2.711, p < .001; F = 5.079, p < .001; F = 6.737, p < .001 and F = 7.908, p < .001, respectively); and 3) at week 12 after the program, persons at risk of metabolic syndrome had statistically significant lower average blood triglyceride and higher average blood HDL-cholesterol than before the program (t = 4.840, p < .001 and t = 3.690, p < .001, respectively).


This research suggested that health care providers should apply this aerobic hula hoop exercise for persons at risk of metabolic syndrome via video using with appropriate time, frequency, and continuity. Also, the formation of aerobic hula hoop exercise group or club should be promoted.
