Two hundred and fifty-nine women (aged 70–93 years) were randomized to participate in an exercise or a computer course or a control condition for 6 months. Subjective ratings of the perceived change of cognitive and physical fitness components were captured before, during, after the intervention interval, and at a 10-month follow-up. Positive and negative affect levels and objective cognitive fitness parameters served as possible covariates. Multilevel modeling revealed that the computer group rated memory and concentration as having improved at 4 months and again at 6 months. The exercise group, in contrast, perceived physical capacities as maintained or improved. The characteristics of the activity experience seem to determine the perceived fitness changes. We conclude that actual learning experiences improve one’s self-concept of abilities.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Publ. in: Aging, Neuropsychology, and Cognition ; 18 (2011), 3. - S. 328-339</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dcterms:title>Activity experiences shape perceived fitness trajectories : results from a 6-month randomized controlled trial in older women</dcterms:title> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:contributor>Klusmann, Verena</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Klusmann, Verena</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2012-02-20T15:44:55Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dc:contributor>Evers, Andrea</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2012-02-20T15:44:55Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Heuser, Isabella</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Evers, Andrea</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2011-05</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Schwarzer, Ralf</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Schwarzer, Ralf</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
