Physical inactivity is a fast-growing public health problem and contributes to a variety of chronic diseases and health complications, including obesity, heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, cancer, depression, anxiety, arthritis, osteoporosis and more! Increasing physical activity and improving nutritional habits has proven effective in the treatment and prevention of many chronic diseases.
Population studies from the American College of Sports Medicine have clearly demonstrated the benefits of regular exercise, however, participation rates continue to be generally low and dropout rates continue to remain relatively high. For an apparently healthy adult, the culprit isn’t an inability to exercise and achieve results, but rather a lack of behavioral intention to make it happen. Others struggle with self-efficacy. They lack confidence in their ability to succeed at a specific task, thus internal motivation is impaired. Some individuals may also find it hard to relate to the perceived benefits of physical activity, good nutrition, and healthy living. If there is no perception of benefit, there is no value involved.
