Abstract It is recommended to combine actions across sectors to increase the physical activity (pa) behavior in populations. The objective of this presentation is to compare short-term changes of pa after health care setting counselling (HCSC) only and HCSC plus sports club exercise intervention. Social insurance companies contacted adults from 11 regions in Styria, a state of Austria, who were assigned to attend a one- to three-week health resort stay. All participants received HCSC and the intervention group (IG) in addition a voucher for 12 JACKPOT-programme sessions in their close neighbourhood. Pa was assessed by accelerometer (GENEActiv) and potential predictors of pa behavior with a questionnaire at baseline and 10-weeks after the start of the health resort stay. Mixed ANOVA was applied for within and between-group effects comparison.Valid measurements were available from 400 participants at baseline and from 170 (43%) participants at follow-up. In the final sample 128 (75.3%) participants belonged to the IG and 42 (24.7%) to the control group (CG); 94 (55.3%) were women, and the average age was 52.3 (SD=6.4). There were no baseline differences in pa behavior and sociodemographic variables between IG and CG. Participants of IG significantly increased their moderate- to vigorous-intensity pa behavior from 113 (SD=92) min/week to 169 (SD=138) and the change in pa was higher in the IG compared to the CG. Health care setting counselling combined with an exercise programme in a sports club successfully increased the pa behaviour. External funding details The project was supported by the Gesundheitsfonds Steiermark and the Bundessportförderungsfonds: Breitensport.
