A Program to Increase Exercise
The investigators propose that healthy behaviors such as exercise could be increased through interactive interventions and weigh-ins (ie weekly emails, questionnaires, weigh-ins, and pay for participating in a study).
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
- Increase in gym attendance [ Time Frame: up to 52 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Experience weight loss [ Time Frame: up to 52 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||September 2011|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||September 2012|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||December 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
No Intervention: Control
Participants who do not receive any intervention
don't receive anything
Participants who are weighed both at the beginning and end of a 10 week period, receive weekly emails asking them about their exercise, and complete various questionnaires at the study's outset and read about the benefits of exercise. They also receive $100 in pay for their time and either 4 iTunes audio novels or the equivalent cash value.
Receive weekly emails, information about the benefits of exercise, and compensation.
