This study examined whether tailored support from older peer volunteers could improve initiation and long-term maintenance of physical activity behavior.;;Participants were randomized to 2 16-week, group-based programs: (1) peer-delivered, theory-based support for physical activity behavior change; or (2) an intervention typically available in community settings (basic education, gym membership, and pedometer for self-monitoring), attention-matched with health education.
