Abstract

Eight service-users who were regular gym attendees were identified to participate in this project. Baseline fitness assessments were completed and pedometers issued. Individualised dietary advice was offered and accepted by six participants. Data recording of number of daily steps of each participant was completed over eight-nine weeks with regular rewards handed out for achievement and effort. Fitness assessments were repeated at five and nine weeks.
