BARRETOI, Philipe de Souto. Long-term adherence to exercise: the relationship with functional fitness and personal motivation among community-dwelling independent-living older women. Rev. Bras. Ciênc. Esporte (Impr.) [online]. 2011, vol.33, n.1, pp.193-206. ISSN 0101-3289.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-32892011000100013.

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study were to examine the relationships between functional fitness, self-esteem, aesthetic body care and long-term adherence to dance, and to identify other characteristics related to dance adherence in the elderly. METHODS: Seventeen women, aged 59-86 years-old, who practised a type of dance labeled "bodily expression". RESULTS: Functional fitness was correlated to dance adherence and was the only factor related to this variable in a linear regression analysis. Self-esteem and aesthetic body care seemed to play an indirect role on adherence. Functional fitness, specially upper-body flexibility and lower-body muscular function, and interest in dance (qualitative data) were related to long-term adherence to dance. CONCLUSIONS: Functional fitness and interest in exercising were the main aspects related to participants' long-term adherence to dance.
