First paragraph: Health promotion programmes focused on improving
physical activity have traditionally failed to engage and retain men, resulting in under-represented outcomes and challenges with generalisability. Recent interest and developments in men’s health research have led to an increased number of interventions specifically targeted at engaging and retaining men. In our recent systematic review and meta-analysis, published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, we aimed to determine the effects of behaviour change interventions on men’s physical activity and to identify potential moderators of intervention effectiveness (eg, theoretical underpinning, gender-tailored, contact frequency). Study findings are summarised below and in the accompanying infographic.
