Motivating People to be Physically Active
Bess Marcus, Leighann Forsyth

Motivating People to Be Physically Active is a comprehensive reference describing proven methods for helping people change from inactive to active living. The behavior change methods are useful not only for healthy adults but also for individuals with chronic physical and psychological conditions. The renowned authors describe intervention programs for individuals and groups and in workplace and community settings.

This book is the first in the Physical Activity Intervention series, edited by Steven Blair. The objective of the series is to provide useful educational resources to all professionals who are interested in promoting and implementing physical activity programs to a diverse and potentially unwilling population.

In Motivating People to Be Physically Active you will learn how to
• improve motivation by understanding the key psychological principles of behavior change;

• assess your clients' physical activity patterns, readiness, motivations, and barriers;

• use a 5-stage model to measure motivational readiness for physical activity; and

• apply stage-specific strategies for individual, group, workplace, and community interventions.
In addition to exercises and various reproducible log pages and worksheets, this book has eight sample reproducible questionnaires for evaluating the effectiveness of programs. This is an essential resource for health professionals who want to improve their effectiveness as they plan, develop, implement, and evaluate physical activity programs.
Paperback, 2003, 220pages, good condition, dozen pages have pencil notes/underlines
