In this unique longitudinal panel study, we investigated the dynamic interplay between social sports networks, sporting motivations, and sports outcomes (training consistency and goal achievement) among first-time participants of the 2019 edition of the 7K or 15K ‘Seven Hills Run’.

Online social network experiment

We designed a social network intervention in the online fitness and coaching platform Final Surge with the goal to examine the effects of (online) social support and social comparison as strategies for motivating sports behavior.
