Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The Theory of Planned Behaviour is a well established model in marketing as well as in the social sciences. Attempts have been made over the years to increase the explanatory ability of the model through the use of additional variables. Individual studies have shown the benefits of such additions, but as yet no serious attempts have been made to incorporate other formal social models or theories into the TPB. This paper presents results from an initial study exploring the relationship with the TPB of two independent social theories, subjective well-being and healthy lifestyle. Results show that both theories make a potential contribution to the TPB.
