    Abstract

    Physical activity as a public health intervention is still a relatively
    new concept and although the health benefits of activity are widely
    acknowledged (1) there is still no consensus as to the most effective
    way of getting people to become more active. This has led to calls
    for ‘properly designed’ evaluation studies (2) and has elevated
    the importance of finding out what works. This article examines
    evaluation methods and looks at the dilemmas and some of the
    successful approaches experienced by the author.
