Research utilizing the Transtheoretical Model (TM) and social support within clinical exercise populations is lacking and this study assessed those constructs among cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation program participants. There was an increase in the TM constructs for participants who completed rehabilitation. Also, several TM constructs were significantly related to the stages of change and adherence. Self-efficacy was the best predictor of adherence. Results indicate that the TM and social support can be used to understand adherence to cardiopulmonary rehabilitation programs. The results obtained from this study may assist in developing stage-based interventions that help individuals adhere to their rehabilitation program.
