Abstract

Physical activity (PA) is widely recognised as being integral to physical and mental wellbeing.
The World Health Organisation recommends around 150–300minutes of moderately intense
PA per week for adults aged 18–64years. Physical inactivity costs the UK £7.4 billion per year
and is associated with one out of every six deaths that occur in the country. The review aims
at exploring the barriers and facilitators to making healthy PA lifestyle choices among UK
BAME adults during the COVID-19 pandemic. Database searches were conducted in CINAHL,
AMED, Medline, SCOPUS, COCHRANE, EMBASE, and Web of Science. There are 53 records that
were identified. After removing three duplicates, the titles and abstracts of 50 papers were
screened. Of these, all but 50 studies were excluded after reviewing the title and abstracts,
resulting in no studies eligible for inclusion. Data extraction using the JBI-QARI data extraction
template was performed, followed by a narrative synthesis of the resulting data; however, no
eligible studies were identified. This empty systematic review without meta-analysis,
highlighted major research gaps and indicated the state of the evidence between 2019–2021.
The review has, through the application of theoretical models (COM-B and TTM), highlighted
themes that need to be addressed.
