Abstract : The purpose of this three-year study is to: 1) implement a computerized database to track the fatness and physical performance of Reservists assigned to the 94th RRC and 804th Medical Brigade, 2) provide the 94th RRC and 804th Medical Brigade with an environmental/internet-based intervention to increase health risk communication and promote healthy body weight/fatness and physical performance, 3) monitor the fatness and physical performance of the Reservists for two years following a one-year baseline period to evaluate the efficacy of the intervention, and 4) evaluate consumer satisfaction with the intervention.
