The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of individual feedback intervention (IFB) or general video intervention (GV) on promoting daily physical activity. One hundred and thirty-six community-dwelling people volunteered as subjects and participated in the 2-month walking program provided as a correspondence course. The subjects were randomly allocated to one of four groups, which consisted of either IFB or GV. Each of the groups was based on behavioral science. The stage of change in exercise, self-efficacy for exercise and daily physical activity were measured before and after intervention 4 months later during the follow-up period. There were statistically significant effects of both 'time' (F = 3.71, p = 0.026) and 'time'X'IFB' (F = 3.76, p = 0.025) in self-efficacy for exercise; while there was no significant effect of interaction between 'time'X'GV. As for daily physical activity, there was no significant effect of the interaction both of 'time'X'IFB' and 'time'X'GV. These results suggest the IFB of promoting self-efficacy for exercise.
