Abstract: E-coaching technologies constitute an emerging trend because they differ from the ordinary methods that tend to patronize user’s behavior. E-coaching focuses on co-organization and personalisation of the intervention by the user and the system. The current work describes some important features that must be studied in the design process of an e-coaching system that promotes the adherence of physical activity in older adults. The proposed system will be based upon already existing exergame platform for elderly, the webFitForAll. Firstly, the significance of physical activity in elder’s everyday life and how the physical activity guidelines are implemented in webFitForAll are discussed. Furthermore, the behavior change techniques, that are an important part of e-coaching systems, are presented as well as the design plans for the e-coaching environment.
