Comparison of three interventions to increase walking etc

The objective of this study was to increase walking activity in sedentary women. Women were randomly assigned to 1 of 3 groups: video education/control, brief telephone calls with no counseling, and telephone calls with counseling. Assessments were made at baseline, 6 months, and 1 year. It was found that all interventions increased the number of reported minutes walked and decreased the time to walk a mile.
