The purpose

The HealtheSteps™ (HeS) Program is an evidence-based, community-focused, lifestyle prescription (Rx) program, supported by in-person coaching and innovative health technologies. The program improves the health of Canadians and reduces their risk for chronic disease by tackling three major risk factors that are shared across a number of chronic diseases: physical inactivity, sedentary behaviour and poor diet. Each HeS participant receives an individualized healthy living Rx for exercise, physical activity (step counts) and healthy eating, supported by coaching and technology tools to promote long-term health behaviour change. For this study, the investigators will undertake a 6-month pilot pragmatic randomized controlled trial (RCT), conducted within 5 clinic settings in Southwestern Ontario. The primary aim is to conduct an outcome evaluation to determine the effectiveness of the HeS program in helping at-risk individuals increase physical activity levels, improve eating habits, and improve other health behaviours and health indicators.
