Correlations between behavior specific self-efficacy and health-related behavior have been noted, however, studies to evaluate the relationship between age and behavior specific self-efficacy appraisals are needed. The study purposes were as follows: to describe the factors included in a walking for exercise self-efficacy appraisal process; to compare the sefl-efficacy appraisal factors described by walkers under 65 with self-efficacy appraisal factors described by walkers 65 and older; and to describe the walking for exercise routines followed by participants. A total of 44 adults currently participating in a walking for exercise program each participated in a 90 minute focus group discussion session. Seven group discussion sessions were held (3 sessions were attended by walkers younger than 65 and 4 sessions were attended by walkers 65 and older). Walkers were recruited for participation using newspaper advertisements; interviews with radio personalities; public service radio announcements; recruitment at the shopping mall; and recruitment at a "Fit and Fifty" exercise class. Group discussions were recorded and transcribed to identify common themes. One striking self-efficacy appraisal group difference concerned the "making time to exercise" factor. Finding the time to exercise was a significant problem for persons in the under 65 group, however persons 65 and over often remarked that time was not a concern. Walkers' 65 and over did not identify health concerns to be a barrier to walking for exercise adherence with any greater frequency than walkers younger than 65. Development of two age specific (younger than 65 and 65 and older) "Walker for Exercise Self-Efficacy" Instruments is planned.
