Active Team – a smartphone-delivered physical activity intervention

Active Team

Do you want to get more active? Join the Active Team study!

We are looking for volunteers who are Facebook users, aged 18 – 65 years and currently performing less than 150 minutes of physical activity per week.

Active Team is a smartphone app that helps increase users’ physical activity by encouraging them to take at least 10,000 steps per day, for 100 days. Take the 100 day challenge with your friends!

We are looking for volunteers who are:

  1. Aged 18 – 65 years old
  2. Currently engaging in less than 150 minutes of physical activity (e.g. walking, running, cycling) per week
  3. Own a smartphone
  4. Facebook users who log in at least once per week
  5. Living anywhere in Australia
  6. Fluent in English
  7. Can recruit at least two other existing Facebook friends who also meet the eligibility criteria to participate in the study with you


To help us understand whether the Active Team app helps you get more activity, we will ask you to complete a 10 minute online survey and wear a wrist-worn activity monitor for a week, before you use the app, and again after 3 and 9 months.

At the end of the trial you will be reimbursed $75 for participating.

Participation in this study is voluntary. If you would like more information about the study please contact Ph: 8302 1365 or Email:
