Population prevalence and correlates of stages of change in physical activity.
Stages of change for exercise, sociodemographic variables, and beliefs about the health benefits of exercise were obtained for a representative sample of Australian adults (N = 4404).
Logistic regression analysis was used to examine the relationship between exercise stage of change and sociodemographic variables and beliefs about the benefits of exercise.
Thirteen percent of respondents stated that they did not exercise and did not intend to start; 10% stated that they did not exercise but were thinking of starting; 16% stated that they exercise occasionally and were not thinking of doing more; 23% stated that they exercised occasionally and were thinking of doing more; and 38% stated that they exercised regularly and intended to continue.
