Objective: To assess impact of exercise education intervention on exercise frequency and attitudes. Methods: Cardiovascular outpatients (N=509) were randomized to receive an education DVD or standard care. Outcome measures (baseline and 6 weeks) assessed exercise frequency and cognitive variables. Results: There was no difference between groups on exercise frequency change from baseline, but DVD group reported greater exercise outcome expectations than control group (P=0.01). There was a greater increase in relapse-prevention behavior in the DVD group, compared to control, for those with low relapse-prevention behavior at baseline (P=0.02). Conclusion: A minimal intervention improves outcome expectations for exercise.
