Experimental: High Intensity Interval Training
Participants will be shown the appropriate techniques and intensity (high intensity; i.e., 70-90% of maximum heart rate (220-age) with a verified online youtube video. Participants will be provided with this video and other options that can be followed to complete 15 minute HIIT interventions at home. Interventionist will observe participant engaging in HIIT for 15 minutes. HIIT intervention (for 15 minutes) will also be observed during Session 4 and 8.
Behavioral: High Intensity Intervention
Instructed in high intensity interval training techniques and will be provided videos to follow for implementation of intervention at home that will include short bursts of high energy
This intervention will be demonstrated during Session 1. Participants will be shown the appropriate walking intensity (low intensity; i.e., approximately 50% of maximum heart rate (220-age) or lower) by interventionist. Interventionist will observe participant engaging in walking at appropriate intensity level for 15 minutes. Walking intervention (for 15 minutes) will also be observed during Session 4 and 8.
Behavioral: Low Intensity Exercise Intervention
Those in the walking intervention will be instructed to take walks below a brisk pace (low intensity) to improve mood
- Efficacy of HIIT measured by Quality of Life Enjoyment & Satisfaction Questionnaire (Q-LES-Q-SF) [ Time Frame: Week 1 ]Scoring involves summing only the first 14 items to yield a raw total score. The last two items are not included in the total score but are stand alone items. The raw score ranges from 14 to 70.
- Efficacy of HIIT measured by Quality of Life Enjoyment & Satisfaction Questionnaire (Q-LES-Q-SF) [ Time Frame: Week 10 ]Scoring involves summing only the first 14 items to yield a raw total score. The last two items are not included in the total score but are stand alone items. The raw score ranges from 14 to 70.
