Abstract Background:<\b>
Any of intervention model based on physical activity (PA) leading to behavior change should not be perceived as a beneficial if an individual does not internally accept PA-changes in future. In a previous research, we verified several effects of designed walking intervention in older women with sedentary occupation. In the research continuity, we therefore aim to assess one-year permanency of relevant walking behavior change (identical to the intervention model). Methods:<\b>
The study involved 53 women (54.8±3.7 years). The original ten-week intervention was based on brisk walk to work (35-35 minutes; five times a week) (WW). We collected data in the 55th week after the beginning of the intervention. In seven consecutive days, women were recording the number of daily steps measured by Yamax SW-700 pedometer and registering those days they performed WW. The permanency of walking behavior change was assessed based on a percentage of women continuing WW after one year, a decrease of PA level in women in post-intervention period, and a one-year-increase of number of women which met the PA recommendations. Results:<\b>
We observed one-year adherence to WW in 77.4% (at least three times a week) and 41.0% (five times a week) of women, the decrease of 323.3 number of steps per day in post-intervention period (p=.468), and large one-year percentage increase (from 34% to 56.6%) of women meeting the PA recommendation. Conclusions: The presented WW seems to be well acceptable movement behavior change in women with sedentary occupation.
