No Intervention: Control condition
Physically inactive employees are measured on anthropometrics, fitness and psycho-social variables.
Experimental: Physical Activity Coaching
Physically inactive employees receiving a 12-week behavioural support intervention grounded in self-determination theory.
Behavioral: physical activity coaching
After measuring physical actity, physical fitness level, anthropometric and psychosocial variables a personalized 12 week physical activity program is made (=baseline). The intervention consisted of two face-to-face counselling sessions at the start of the intervention, short contacts by e-mail or telephone at weeks 3, 6 and 9, and two face-to-face counselling sessions at the end of the intervention. Employees exercise on their own. After 12 weeks and 6 months all measures are repeated.
- Change in objective measure of degree of physical activity [ Time Frame: baseline, 12 weeks, 6 months ]Sensewear: accelerometer worn on the upper arm during 7 consecutive days measuring the physical activity pattern during this period
- Change in health-related anthropometric measures [ Time Frame: baseline, 12 weeks, 6 months ]Weight, Abdominal circumference, Bodycomposition (fat- and musclepercentage)
- Change in psycho-social variables [ Time Frame: baseline, 12 weeks, 6 months ]Measuring general and work related well-being, motivation to be physically active and social identification with the physical activity group
