dc.description.abstractAlthough physical activity is associated with numerous health benefits (Kahn et al., 2002; Fentem, 1994; Petruzzello, Landers, Hatfield, Kubitz & Salazar, 1991), physical activity levels in the U.S. remain low (Dominick, & Morey, 2006). In an effort to promote a healthy lifestyle that incorporates regular physical exercise, corporations have implemented health promotion programs (HPP) in the workplace. However, the impact of HPPs are marginal due to low employee participation (Linnan, Sorensen, Colditz, Klar, & Emmons, 2001). The purpose of this study was to investigate perceived social-cognitive factors of Texas State University-San Marcos faculty and staff associated with participation in the Total Wellness program in order to better understand why participation rates are low and recommend strategies to improve program participation.
