Community Intervention: develop and apply promotion strategies oif healthy physical activity in university community, adpted three types of target-users: students, PDI and PAS. 2: individual intervention: to develop a healthy physical exercise program which will be applied to arepresentative sample of university community. The types of target-uses will be distinguished. The follow-up and the benefits will be measured at different levels. 3, Methodological Purposes: a software will be developed in order to make possible individualized planning and "follow-up" and a results obtained
