EFFECTS OF BEHAVIORAL MONITORING ON PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AND PSYCHOSOCIAL DETERMINANTS OF EXERCISE BEHAVIOR
Abstract:The purpose of this study was to determine the effect behavioral monitoring had on female adults' physical activity behavior and the psychosocial determinants of their exercise behavior. The sample consisted of 23 adults (M age=33.5 yr.). Those in the experimental group (n=12) attended a onehour educational seminar, were taught to monitor their behavior using a Caltrac accelerometer, and were issued a Caltrac accelerometer to wear for 14 consecutive days. Those in the control group (n=11) attended the educational program only. At pre- and post-intervention, measures of physical activity and exercise behavior, adherence, identity, and self-efficacy were obtained. A 2 × 2 repeated measures MANOVA revealed no significant between, within, or interaction effects.
