Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to explore the effects of an intervention designed to help increase physical activity and decrease screen time.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Obesity Overweight Other: Exercise-only Other: Control Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The purpose of this study is to investigate attendance, exercise, and screen time habits in fitness center members. Because they are the population under investigation, recruitment will take place via the fitness center facilities. This population is under investigation because much of this population is sedentary and does not exercise at recommended levels, despite access to physical fitness facilities. This research will investigate methods to encourage physical activity in this population.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Exercise-only intervention
Participants will receive information regarding the health benefits of regular aerobic and resistance training exercise and current physical activity guidelines for adults.
Other: Exercise-only
Participants will write goals related to exercise, the most desired outcome of reaching their goals, anticipated obstacles/barriers which may prevent them from achieving their goals, and if-then statements proactively describing how to overcome or avoid obstacles.

Sham Comparator: Control intervention
Participants will receive information regarding the health risks of chronic stress as well as suggested methods to reduce stress.
Other: Control
Participants will be asked to identify stress-reduction techniques which they can use in their daily lives and will be encouraged to practice them as necessary.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Fitness center attendance [ Time Frame: Week 0, 8, 16 ]
    Change in fitness center attendance as measured by number of visits per week
