The purpose of this study was to identify the motivators of physical activities by applying the planned behavior theory to adults as the subjects.
Four hundreds fifty adults in sports and cultural facilities in S district in Seoul participated in the research. Also, attitude, subjective norm, behavioral control perception, behavioral intention, physical environment and physical activity questionnaire were used as measurement tools.
Descriptive statistics, correlation analysis and path analysis were utilized. The results are as follows. Attitude, subjective norm, behavioral control perception and physical environment were shown to have a significant influence on behavioral intention. Whereas intention and behavioral control perception had a direct effect on physical activities, physical environment did not affect physical activities. However, through the extension model, it was confirmed that physical environment influences behavioral intention.
These results suggest that integrated research related to socio-environmental variables that may affect physical activity is needed. This study can contribute to the development of the psychological theory through multidimensional interpretation.
Keywords: planned behavioral theory, physical environment, physical activities
