Despite a number of studies on physical activity, only physiological aspects of physical activity have been focused on. Consequently, very little is known about how women themselves perceive the importance of physical activity. In this study, attitudes toward physical activity of a group of Asian women-Korean women-were explored using a feminist qualitative research design. Seventeen healthy Korean women, 11 Korean women at risk of muscular atrophy, and 16 Korean immigrant women were recruited using theoretical sampling. In-depth interviews were conducted using an interview guide, and they were audio taped and transcribed. Thematic analysis was used to analyze the qualitative data: textual examination of interview transcripts, line-by-line coding of the transcripts into categories that emerged from researches' internal cognitive process and reflexive thinking, description of key relationships between the categories, inductive and deductive cognitive process, writing memos, and group discussions were conducted. The findings indicated that the women tended to have a holistic view on physical activity, death was perceived as the opposite of physical activity; exercise was differentiated from physical activity; and the women did not give any attention to physical activity because of their busy schedules. Based on the findings, implications for nursing research and practice are proposed.
