Purpose: This study examined rural older adults stage of physical activity behavior change, life transition states, and characteristics related to engaging in a church-based physical activity behavior change intervention. Theoretical Framework: The transtheoretical model was used, supported by the conceptual models of transition, and church-based health promotion. Sample: A convenient sample of older adults from rural churches completed a questionnaire after church services (N=39). Method: A descriptive survey method was used. Variables analyzed using SPSS were: Stage of Readiness for Physical Activity Behavior Change, older adult life transitions; access and feasibility of a church-based physical activity intervention; and demographic, including health/illness status. Results: Subjects were in the following stages of change: Precontemplation (0%); Contemplation (2.6%); Preparation (28.2%); Action (2.6%); and Maintenance (66.7%). Life transitions in the past year were reported by 53.8% of the sample, with illness or death of family member or friend most frequently reported. Conclusions: Older adults are at different stages of readiness for change, therefore stage-based interventions are needed to increase physical activity in this population. These findings suggest that church-based physical activity interventions are acceptable to rural older adults.
