VERSION I. Exercise: Stages of Change - From This Study - Includes Relapse
Regular exercise is defined as
any planned or structured physical activity (e.g., brisk walking, group exercise
class, jogging, bicycling, swimming, rowing, etc.) performed to increase
physical fitness. Such activity
should be performed a minimum of 3 times per week for at least 20 minutes per
session. Exercise should be
done at a level that increases your breathing rate and causes you to break a
which stage of exercise behavior you are presently engaged in.
Please choose only one answer.

VERSION II. Exercise: Stages of Change - Short Form
Regular Exercise is any planned physical activity (e.g., brisk walking, aerobics, jogging, bicycling, swimming, rowing, etc.) performed to increase physical fitness. Such activity should be performed 3 to 5 times per week for 20-60 minutes per session. Exercise does not have to be painful to be effective but should be done at a level that increases your breathing rate and causes you to break a sweat.
Do you exercise regularly according to that definition?
