This dissertation studies the development and implementation of the BeweegKuur: a combined lifestyle intervention from primary health care aimed at changing physical activity and eating behaviour. Implementing the programme demanded much time, money and energy from the care providers. Nevertheless, care providers indicated they were satisfied and motivated to continue the programme. Participants were also satisfied with the BeweegKuur and motivated to start exercising. In the care practices that executed the BeweegKuur more multidisciplinary networks developed and the contacts with local sports and exercise providers improved. The BeweegKuur functioned as a boost to realize processes regarding the dissemination of combined lifestyle interventions in primary health care and to further develop these interventions.
