Interventional
Phase 2
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
  • Physical Activity
  • Elderly
Behavioral: Web Mediated Step Intervention
The testing of a web mediated step intervention designed to set weekly step targets, and channel participants through a series of motivational screens depending on compliance or non-compliance with set step goals.
  • No Intervention: Usual Care
    Usual Care
  • Active Comparator: 10,000 Steps Group
    Each participant randomized to this study arm will receive a pedometer and a generic recommendation to accumulate 10,000 Steps per Day.
    Intervention: Behavioral: Web Mediated Step Intervention
  • Experimental: Web Mediated Step Group
    Participants randomized to this study arm receive an introduction to the study website. Each person utilizes the website to track their daily physical activity steps. Goals are given on a weekly basis to increase steps by 10% per day per week over baseline values. The website channels each participant through a series of motivational messages designed to increase compliance with recommended physical activity targets
    Intervention: Behavioral: Web Mediated Step Intervention

  7. Participation in any regular structured exercise (resistance training, Tai Chi, high intensity walking, jogging, cycling, stair climbing, stepping, within the previous 6 months.
  8. Individuals that start a new medication that can impact health variables examined during study period (e.g., beta blockers, glucose or cholesterol altering medications), or individuals who alter medication dose that can impact health variables examined within study period.
