A major goal of Healthy People 2010 is to promote exercise behavior change. Changing exercise behavior may depend on exercise stage of change, or an individual's motivational readiness to change. Although many researchers study exercise stage of change, there is a paucity of research comparing exercise stage of change instruments to structured interview; comparing exercise stage of change instruments to each other; and evaluating psychometric properties of exercise stage of change measures. One model of exercise behavior included factors predicting exercise stage of change and exercise performance. Investigators found that the factors of self-efficacy, decisional balance pros and cons, and processes of change were related to exercise stage of change and to exercise performance, and that exercise stage of change and exercise performance were related. However, many different stage of change instruments were used in these studies. One approach would be to choose the most ideal self-report measures currently available. The aim of this study is to measure exercise behavior by examining exercise stage of change classification comparing selected instruments and a structured interview, and by determining predictive factors (exercise self-efficacy, decisional balance, and processes of change) of exercise stage of change and exercise performance in 108 adults, ages 18 to 65, in a community setting. The subjects will complete three randomly ordered exercise stage of change instruments and a face-to-face structured interview. Then each subject will complete instruments on exercise self-efficacy, decisional balance, and processes of change and an interview of exercise performance. Data analysis will include the use of descriptive statistics, weighted kappas, logistic regression and multiple regression. This research will result in the study of psychometric properties of exercise stage of change self-report measures and new knowledge of the best self-report measures for use in future research.
