The purpose of the study was to compare the effect of two forms of anaerobic exercise, weight training and Hatha yoga, on trait and state anxiety. High levels of trait and state anxiety can cause chronic conditions and develop into an anxiety disorder; therefore, the purpose of this study was to determine how exercise contributes to reducing state and trait anxiety. The research question was: Is there a significant difference between two forms of anaerobic exercise (weight training and Hatha yoga) in changing state and/or trait anxiety? Treatment groups representing each of the two types of anaerobic exercise completed a pretest and posttest State/Trait Anxiety Inventory. Participants were from a convenience sample of 31 males and females attending exercise classes at a postsecondary adult educational institution. Participants completed either weight training or a Hatha yoga session once a week for 8 weeks. Results of the repeated measures analysis of variance tests indicated that there was no significant difference in change (based on the difference between pretest and posttest state (situational) anxiety) between the weight training and yoga groups. However, those in the weight-training group demonstrated a gain in trait anxiety on the inventory, while those in the yoga group demonstrated a decline in trait anxiety. This indicates that Hatha yoga may be more effective in anxiety reduction than weight training and that it can also decrease the manifest anxiety of the exerciser. These findings have important implications for social change in that specific forms of exercise may be more effective in reducing, and that some may actually increase, anxiety. Such information about exercise may be important to clinicians in helping clients with life-threatening conditions as well as to individuals who seek to manage anxiety on their own.
