from By Kate Lyden, Ph.D. and Sarah Kozey Keadle, Ph.D., M.P.H.

Viewpoints presented in SMB commentaries reflect opinions of the authors and do not necessarily reflect positions or policies of ACSM.

Kate Lyden, Ph.D., is a research scientist at the University of Colorado, Denver. Her research is funded by the NIH and examines the effects of interrupting sedentary time with short and continuous bouts of moderate intensity walking on metabolic outcomes in overweight adults. She has developed methodologies to quantify physical activity, sedentary behavior and sleep using wearable sensors and uses these techniques to understand the dose-response relationship between physical activity, sedentary behavior and chronic disease.

Sarah Kozey Keadle, Ph.D., M.P.H., is a cancer prevention fellow in the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics at the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, Maryland. Her research broadly focuses on the relationship between physical activity, sedentary behavior and disease prevention, with a specific interest in improving measures of active and sedentary behaviors and applying novel methods to further our understanding of the associations between these behaviors and health risk.

This commentary presents Drs. Lyden’s and Kozey Keadle’s views on the topic related to a research article they authored with their colleagues and which appears in the May 2015 issue of Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise® (MSSE). more
