Abstract

The purpose of this study is to examine the relationships among exercise stages, exercise benefits, and exercise barriers. This is a correlative and descriptive study. Two questionnaires, including the Exercise Stage Scale and the Exercise Benefits/Barriers Scale, were used in this study. A total of 72 middle-aged menopausal women were recruited in the study. Among the three stages of exercise, the results reveal that 59.7% of subjects were in the preparation stage, 27.8% were in the precontemplation/ contemplation stage, and 12.5% were in the action/ maintenance stage. With respect to body mass index, education, and health status, a significant difference was observed in different exercise stages. Perceived exercise benefit was positively related to the education level. Perceived exercise barrier was negatively related the subject's age. Among the different exercise stages, subjects' perceived exercise barriers were significantly different. The scores in the psychological dimension of exercise barriers were significantly higher in the preparation stage than in the action/maintenance stage. The results of this study will be valuable in providing nursing interventions to promote the physical activity among menopausal women.
