Resumen: The multi-systemic nature of fibromyalgia complicates therapeutic protocols, which (a) must be individualised according to the clinical severity and symptomatology of each patient, and (b) should include different types of interventions, including possibly physical training.

Objetivo: The main purposes of this project are: (i) To track the levels and patterns of physical activity and sedentary behaviours (objectively measured by accelerometry), functional capacity, pain, overall health status and quality of life of 300 Spanish women with fibromyalgia aged 35-65 years over a 2-years period -longitudinal study-. (ii) To examine the capacity of physical activity and functional capacity to predict pain, health status and quality of life in these patients 2-years later -longitudinal study-. (iii) To determine the effect of two types of exercise training interventions (water- and land-based aerobic-strength training vs. a control group) on pain (primary aim), health and quality of life (secondary aim) in women (n=180) aged 35-65 years with fibromyalgia -intervention study-. The intervention groups will train 3 days/week (60 min per session) for a 24-week period. The intensity will be adapted during the program and will range from 50% to 80% of maximum heart rate (209-0.73 x age). We will also study the effect of a detraining period (3 months with no exercise intervention) on the studied variables.
