Two studies were undertaken to compare strategies for the adoption and maintenance of moderate-intensity, home-based exercise training. Taken together, these studies suggest that brief baseline instruction followed by continuing telephone contact with staff can be used to help people adopt a moderate-intensity, home-based exercise training program that can be maintained by simple self-monitoring strategies.
