The authors developed, implemented, and evaluated a health promotion program for employees at a state college in New Jersey on the basis of a campus health survey. The resulting physical fitness and exercise program with educational components was assessed twice. Comparisons of experimental and control groups, using one-way analyses of variance, revealed significant differences on four variables: high-density lipoprotein (HDL), total cholesterol/HDL ratio, triglycerides, and body weight in pounds.
