Pasos Hacia La Salud - Physical Activity Intervention for Latinas
In this study, investigators are specifically targeting Latina women as they are more likely to be inactive and, therefore, are at higher risk for developing chronic conditions such as obesity, diabetes, or cardiovascular disease.
The objective of Pasos Hacia La Salud is to test a Spanish-language Internet-based Physical Activity Intervention, in comparison to a Spanish-language Internet-based Wellness Contact Control condition. Participants are randomly assigned to one of two groups (Exercise and General Wellness).
The investigators hypothesize that at the end of treatment, intervention participants will report significantly more minutes of moderate intensity physical activity per week than the wellness contact control participants.

|Official Title:||Promoting Physical Activity in Latinas Via Interactive Web-Based Technology|
- Change in total weekly minutes of physical activity as measured by the 7-Day PAR (Physical Activity Recall), from Baseline to 6-months and 12-months. [ Time Frame: Baseline, 6 months, and 12 months ]The 7-Day PAR is an interviewer administered instrument that uses multiple strategies for increasing accuracy of participant recall regarding many types of activities such as time spent sleeping and moderate, hard, and very hard intensity activities. The 7-Day PAR is used across many studies assessing physical activity and has consistently demonstrated acceptable reliability, internal consistency, and congruent validity with other objective measures of activity levels.

Experimental: Physical Activity Intervention
Motivationally-tailored, Spanish Language, Internet-based Physical Activity intervention that specifically addresses the Physical Activity barriers and intervention needs/preferences of Latinas.
Behavioral: Physical Activity Intervention
Participants in the Physical Activity intervention arm of the study receive a Spanish language, motivationally-tailored, Internet-based Physical Activity intervention that specifically addresses the Physical Activity barriers and intervention needs/preferences of Latinas.
Active Comparator: Wellness Control
Internet-based, Spanish language, Wellness Contact control intervention addressing relevant health topics other than Physical Activity.
Behavioral: Wellness Control
Participants will receive a Spanish language, Internet-based Wellness Contact control intervention addressing relevant health topics other than physical activity.
