Behavioral - Step 1: PA Monitor

The participant will receive an enhanced physical activity monitor treatment for weeks 1-8, which includes goal setting with a physical activity prescription, and self-monitoring with a physical activity monitor.

Behavioral - Step 1: PA Monitor + Text

The participant will receive an enhanced physical activity monitor treatment for weeks 1-8, which includes goal setting with a physical activity prescription, and self-monitoring with a physical activity monitor. In addition, these participants will receive motivational text messages. For participants who remain less than halfway to their daily step goal by a designated daily time, a motivational text message with a strategy to overcome barriers will be sent.

Behavioral - Step 2: PA Monitor with Calls

Nonresponders to the enhanced physical activity monitor, will receive an augmented treatment. The participant will continue to receive an enhanced physical activity monitor treatment for weeks 9-34. In addition they will receive ten brief motivational telephone calls, made by an interventionist, every two to three weeks during weeks 9-34.

Behavioral - Step 2: PA Monitor with Meetings

Nonresponders to the enhanced physical activity monitor, will receive an augmented treatment. The participant will continue to receive an enhanced physical activity monitor treatment for weeks 9-34. In addition, the participant will take part in five 45-minute group meetings held every four to six weeks during Weeks 9-34.

Behavioral - Step 2: PA Monitor + Texts with Calls

Nonresponders to the enhanced physical activity monitor plus text messaging, will receive an augmented treatment. The participant will continue to receive an enhanced physical activity monitor treatment for weeks 9-34. In addition, these participants will continue to receive motivational text messages. For participants who remain less than halfway to their daily step goal by a designated daily time, a motivational text message with a strategy to overcome barriers will be sent.
