We determine the effect of “ActiveChat” - an 8-week classroom-based physical activity (PA) and sedentary behaviour (SB) programme on adolescents’ motivation and PA. Results of the feasibility study provides preliminary evidence suggesting that an 8-week teacher-led classroom-based PA and SB programme has the potential to maintain adolescents' motivation towards PA, and increase in-class levels of PA. This indicates that pedagogical methods could be adapted to incorporate more PA within secondary school classrooms.
