The regular physical activity with enough amounts of intensity, duration and frequency plays a key role in our health and body shape. However, for sedentary individuals who have negative or even painful feeling on exercise, it is a challenge to maintain enough activities. We propose a pleasurable persuasive model (PPM) to tackle the challenge. PPM emphasizes the combination of psychological driven and physiological adaptation, encouraging health behavior change in an aesthetical pleasurable way. Coming with a complete set of design strategies including pleasure, guidance, motivation, and reminder, a prototype system is developed to experiment the effectiveness and feasibility of the approach. The real time biofeedback and aesthetical pleasure is integrated seamlessly into this system. Results from a three-week in-lab user study have demonstrated that, the system is able to encourage regular physical activities with enough amounts of intensity, duration and frequency in a pleasurable way, proving the effectiveness of PPM.
