ABSTRACT

Background: The prevalence of overweight and obesity are rising and they are associated with many medical complications and increased health care costs. In today’s lives, lots of ways are being tried to reduce weight. There are different forms of exercises which can either be performed under the supervision of exercise trainer (supervised exercise) or with the use of workout videos. Now a day’s lots of exercises are performed looking at DVD. The purpose of this study is to see whether supervised exercise or workout videos are effective for weight reduction.

Materials and Methods: This was a randomised control trial conducted in K.J. Somaiya College of Physiotherapy. 30 individuals belonging to the inclusion criteria were randomly selected and divided into 2 groups of 15 each. Evaluation in terms of weight, girth measurements and fat percentage was taken. The exercise protocol for supervised exercise (live) and workout videos (DVD) was same and a DVD/CD was given to DVD group. The study duration was 4 days/ week for 4 weeks.

Results: Weight loss from baseline to 4 weeks for supervised exercise and workout videos exercise was 1.53± 0.83 and 0.413± 0.5181 kg which was statistically significant (p< 0.0001) and (p< 0.0004) respectively. Similarly the reduction in waist girth post 4 weeks for group A and group B was 2.4± 0.9856 and 1.4± 0.6325 cm   and in hip girth was 2.86± 1.506 and 1.16± 0.87 cm. The reduction in fat percentage in group A and group B was 1.58± 1.053 and 0.413± 0.5181.

Conclusion: Individuals who participated in the 4 weeks exercise program achieved reduction in all outcome measures however supervised ( live) exercise program achieved greater results in weight, fat percentage, waist girth, hip girth and BMI as compared to workout videos( DVD exercise). Thus from the study can be concluded that there is reduction in weight in both the groups however Live exercises are better than DVD exercises for weight reduction.

KEY WORDS: Overweight, obesity, supervised exercise, workout videos, weight reduction, girth reduction.
