The main aim of this effort is to test a physical activity intervention, for adult clinical care patients at risk of developing cardiovascular disease. The intervention includes social-cognitive theory-based sessions, remote coaching, a body worn physical activity tracker (PAT), and is delivered online over one year. The investigators hypothesis that this intervention will be more successful at increasing physical activity (defined as objectively measured step counts and % of individuals meeting the moderate-vigorous physical activity goal) as an active control group who receives a body worn PAT and information on the CDC activity recommendations. The proposed intervention will be aligned with efforts by the US Centers for Disease Control to increase population physical activity levels and the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) to increase physical activity prescription in primary care.
