During adolescence, participation in physical activity decreases while concern about weight increases as teens get older. Using Internet-based healthy strategies with teens who need or want to make changes to their bodies may be a practical method to help them participate in physical activity to attain and maintain healthy bodies. The purpose of this pilot test was to develop and assess acceptability and feasibility of an avatar-based, theoretically derived, mobile application entitled, Having a Positive Perception of You Application (HAPPY App).
