Participants met with a PhD level psychologist experienced with health behavior change, to set a personalized exercise goal and plan. Participants were told the studies' goal to engage in 150 minutes of moderate intensity or greater physical activity each week, based on the ACSM recommendations, but participants were allowed to set any personal goal. Participants were also instructed on how to self-monitor their physical activity.
After the initial meeting all other intervention components were sent through the mail. The intervention consists of three types of print material that were mailed: stage-matched manuals, tailored feedback report, and tip sheets.
