Health Promotion Practice September 2010 Vol. 11, No. 5, 741-750 DOI: 10.1177/1524839908330745 ©2010 Society for Public Health Education Authors’ Note: All correspondence and requests for reprints should be addressed to Kathryn H.

Assessment and Outcomes of HealthPartners 10,000 Steps Program in an Academic Work Site Rebecca M. Speck, MPH Rhonda K. Hill, MPH Nico P. Pronk, PhD, MA Mark P. Becker, PhD Kathryn H. Schmitz, PhD, MPH The authors examined the feasibility, acceptability, and potential for physical activity behavior change of a 21-week, 10,000 Steps® program in an academic work site. In a pre-post, noncontrolled study design, partici- pants were supplied a pedometer, online resource, and health promotional activities. Means, medians, ranges, and frequencies of self-reported average daily steps (ADS) described physical activity behavior change. An online exit survey assessed the acceptability of the inter- vention. Of 1,322 eligible participants, 619 (47%) regis- tered; 74% of participants tracked step counts at least once, and 57 (9%) tracked them all 21 weeks. The pro- portion of cohort participants with < 7,499 ADS tracking all 21 weeks was significantly less than that same cohort tracking only at baseline (p < .02). Survey results showed that 85% of the participants reported general satisfac- tion with content and navigation of the program Web site. Results suggest elements of feasibility and accept- ability but limited potential for physical activity behav- ior change. Future studies should assess preenrollment ADS and barriers to retaining participants. Keywords:
