Eighteen schools were randomly assigned to the intervention condition (DOiT) or the control condition (regular curriculum). Immediately after the end of the school year (8-month follow-up) and 1 year later (20-month follow-up) the girls in the intervention schools showed a significantly smaller increase in sum of skin folds. In boys, increases in waist circumference (8-month follow-up) and triceps, biceps, and subscapular 24 skin fold thickness (at 20-month follow-up) were significantly smaller in the intervention group.

Although the majority of studies reported positive effects on PA, these effects could not be sustained over a longer period of time. They also concluded that the reported improvements were generally limited to school-related PA, while PA during leisure time was not significantly affected. This finding links to another important conclusion, namely that PA interventions including parental involvement might be better in improving leisure time PA levels among teenagers. They suggested that the promising results of two interventions that involved peers and included links with the wider community should be confirmed by further research.

However, the underlying mechanisms of successful PA and sports injury prevention interventions are not yet fully understood since only a few studies have provided sufficient details on the intervention contents and theoretical models they were based on to achieve the behavioural change. Often, more energy is devoted to the evaluation of poorly defined interventions of limited general applicability, than to the appropriate development of these interventions (MRC, 1997). , 2000). It is suggested that carefully tailored, theoretically well-supported interventions are essential for successful behavioural changes.
