The program is designed to promote physical activity among college-aged women. The intervention includes the following: 1) Modules 1-9; 2) Goal Statement form; 3) Recording Sheet; 4) Directions for Wearing Pedometer; and 5) Participant form. A research study was conducted to test the efficacy of the intervention and at posttest, the intervention group increased their physical activity significantly higher than the control group.
