Abstract: It is commonly known that physical activity is important to maintain health and prevent diseases. Many physical activity interventions have been developed to motivate people to be more physically active. Existing ICT-based interventions provide system-to-human feedback as a motivational strategy to be more physically active. In this paper we propose the ICT-mediated Community Coaching functionality as a novel motivational strategy based on human-to-human feedback where we transform the physical activity into a social activity. This paper presents the requirement elicitation, the design and implementation, and the evaluation of the Community Coaching system for physical activity.
