Specifically, MSTEP is a virtual exercise program that can be used by any child (ages 11-18 years) in the United States. During the study, you are given an exercise program and exercise activities to complete each week, meet with a health coach weekly via Zoom, and answer some survey questions. All participants are provided compensation for their time as a thank you. To learn more about the study, visit the study website. MSTEP is funded by the National Institutes of Health.
