Abstract

Moving through the stages of change in walking exercise behavior was associated with gender, self-efficacy, the physical environment (landscape), and all components of the social environment. These findings suggest that in order to help older adults transition successfully through these stages of change, it is necessary to implement individualized interventions with due regard to landscape preservation, social environment, and self-efficacy, as well as participants' current stage of change.
