Physical Activity: Individually Adapted Health Behavior Change Programs

Description of Resource: 
The Community Preventive Services Task Force recommends implementing individually adapted health behavior change programs based on strong evidence of their effectiveness in increasing physical activity and improving physical fitness among adults and children. Individually adapted health behavior change programs to increase physical activity teach behavioral skills to help participants incorporate physical activity into their daily routines. The programs are tailored to each individual’s specific interests, preferences, and readiness for change.
