The study purpose was to test a regression model designed to predict adherence to a walking for exercise routine. An extension of the Adherence phase of the Natural History of Walking for Exercise Model (NHWEM) was the organizing framework. Pearson Correlations and standard regression were used to assess the relationship between adherence to a self-set walking routine and the following NHWEM factors: personal factors (age, gender, marital status and education); cognitive factors (social support, self-efficacy, normative beliefs, perceived health status and benefits/barriers); and environmental factors (safety, comfort, weather, and the proximity of the walking environment to home). A total of 94 adults currently participating in a walking for exercise routine completed the mailed survey. Actual walking for exercise behaviors for the 12 weeks following survey completion were reported by completing a log or via a telephone interview. Demographic and environmental factors significantly correlated with walking adherence were combined with cognitive factors (individually and combined) to predict walking routine adherence. NHWEM support was limited because unique variability was consistently attributed to only one or two variables and not variable combinations. In most of the regression equations, age was a significant predictor of walking routine adherence. Ad hoc analyses included comparisons of participants 65 and older with participants less than 65 and comparisons of participants reporting a walking relapse of 3 or more weeks with participants not reporting a relapse.
