Title

Longitudinal Differences Among College Students' Motivational Readiness for Regular Physical Activity

Description

David F. Putnam Science Center, Room 282
Despite physical activity being an essential part in one's general health and well-being, many college students are not regularly physically active. However, students in the Physical Education Department (PED) are perceived to be motivated and partake in regular physical activity. In addition, PED students are provided with skills and knowledge about healthy lifestyles that may influence their decisions about engaging in regular physical activity. Transtheoretical Model (TTM) is a behavioral change theory that has been used to assess motivational readiness for physical activity. This project aims to determine if group differences exist across two years within and between undergraduate college students' stage of behavior change for regular physical activity by major (Physical Education Teacher Certification, Exercise Science, and Athletic Training) within the PED. Using self-reports assessing TTM variables, a repeated-measures 3 x 4 ANOVA will reveal if longitudinal group differences exist within and between the PED majors.
