The abstract of this paper gives a detailed overview on the purpose of the article and the methods followed to achieve the objectives. Ambulatory assessment method is used here to conduct the trial methodologies. For this aerobic fitness, the samples (or participants) are already exposed to the intervention program. Through this program, they explain the process and take consent from the participants. This informed consent is further made as confidential and the stress reactivity results are given in anonymous format (Preiser, 1973). By this way, research ethics is well followed. The purpose of this paper is to identify the effectiveness of aerobic exercise training for a person affected with emotional stress.
The methods are detailed enough. While the participants have initially been chosen for the study, there is a clear understanding on the eligibility to take part in the intervention group. The measures that have been taken in this paper ensured accurateness and quality in results. Hence, repeated sampling method was used for subjective psychological variables. Different variables such as perceived stress, mood, aerobic capacity were all analyzed in detail and these results have been summed up to determine the procedure to process the data. The randomized controlled trial design followed in this paper is very much effective to understand the changes in stress reactivity under real life circumstances. The pre- and post- intervention periods have further narrowed down the results and gave better ideas on the characteristics and baseline measures.
