    Abstract

    It is commonly known that physical activity is important to maintain health and prevent diseases. Many physical activity interventions have been developed to motivate people to be more physically active. Existing ICT-based interventions provide system-to-human feedback as a motivational strategy to be more physically active. In this paper we propose the ICT-mediated Community Coaching functionality as a novel motivational strategy based on human-to-human feedback where we transform the physical activity into a social activity. This paper presents the requirement elicitation, the design and implementation, and the evaluation of the Community Coaching system for physical activity.
