Effects of Salient Beliefs on the Intention to Participate in Physical Activity among High School Students Based on the Theory of Planned Behavior
Objective: We examined the effects of the salient beliefs on intentions for physical activity (PA) participation among selected high school students in Seoul, South Korea. Methods: We conducted elicitation to investigate salient beliefs about PA. Main surveys were developed based on the results of elicitation. The data were analyzed using multiple regression. Results: Salient beliefs about PA explain 57.3% of the variance in PA intention among boys (F = 26.833, p < .001) and 50.5% of the variance among girls (F = 14.088, p < .001). Conclusions: Boys were more influenced by physical factors related to PA intention, whereas girls were more affected by emotional factors
