Technology supported services for achieving a healthy lifestyle have shown their short term effects and are receiving increasing interest from the research community. However, long term adherence to these services is poor. This paper describes research-in-progress regarding the implementation of automated goal-setting and tailored feedback messages into one such technology supported service, which aims to improve the user ' s physical activity pattern. Tailored feedback messages for several personas were set up based on theories from behavioral science and categorized by experts during an expert workshop. Results indicate reasonable agreement on the matching of motivational messages to four personas. Additional expert input is discussed descriptively. Future research will focus on examining the effectiveness of the new version of the service under investigation.
