ABSTRACT
Purpose: To describe the level of three Social Cognitive Theory (SCT) variables across exercise stages of change (ESOC). Methods: AU employees of two worksites received an ESOC questionnaire. Subsequently, participants were stratified on stage and sent a questionnaire to measure the SCT variables and exercise behavior. Results: No differences were found for the SCT variables between adjacent ESOC. Significant differences were found for the SCT variables when analyzed across exercise behavior. Discussion: The differences in the selected SCT variables are realized based upon exercise behavior and not intentions to exercise. These results have significant implications for exercise behavior intervention development.
