Cover Story (view full-size image): Brief synopsis: Physical activity (PA) has many health benefits, but most adolescents are insufficiently active. The GoActive study evaluated the effectiveness of a co-designed multicomponent school-based PA promotion program in 13-14-year-olds. The main evaluation showed no evidence for an effect and this study explores some of the reasons behind this. We present mixed-method data from adolescents, mentors, facilitators, and teachers. The paper details adolescent participation and interaction with GoActive, dose of intervention, the extent to which GoActive was implemented as planned, and implementation challenges. Exploring implementation in this way allowed us to better understand the study results, highlight the voices of all actors, and the impact of school context in running GoActive. View this paper
