Activity 18. 1: Matching Exercise Interventions to Individuals in Varying Stages of Behavioral Change Instructions: The five stages of change in the Transtheoretical Model are discussed in your textbook. The key practical implication derived from this heory is that exercise interventions must be matched to an individual’s stage of behavioral change. Indicate what you would do to motivate and encourage desirable exercise behavior participation for a person in each of the following stages of behavioral change. 1. Precontemplation (“couch potato”) stage: looking for activities that are fun and exciting. also planing it into your schedule 2. Contemplation (“thought of getting off the couch”) stage: have them get a partner to get them up and off the coach to help them get up and work out. . Preparation (“exercising some”) stage: make a routine of exercises and always exercise at the same time every day or every other day to help you get into a daily routine. 4. Action (“risk of relapse”) stage: have them get it into a routine make sure that it is always apart of their daily routine. Maintenance (“regular exerciser”) stage: keep going and make sure that you always are encouraging your self and motivating your self with treats every week or month.
