Abstract:In Study 2, 25 participants completed a survey about their motivation for exercise and body attitudes over the course of 5 independent exercise sessions. Quantitative analyses were limited due to lack of variance in key constructs, attrition, and limited representation of multiple activity types. Despite these limitations, participants indicated that involvement in Study 2 impacted their body attitudes and motivation for exercise. The following themes emerged: (a) increased self-awareness, (b) desire to adopt more adaptive attitudes and behaviors (c) desire to change motivation for/type of exercise, and (d) increased self-consciousness. Results are discussed in terms of identifying types of exercise most consistent with competence oriented body perspectives and motivation, clinical implications, and how findings might inform future intervention programs.
