Abstract

Exercise is another way to encourage the elderly to increase daily activities, decrease dependency, and improve self-esteem. It was reported that the elderly teachers and education staff in Bangkok area were still having inappropriate exercise because the exercise programs provided were unable to change the behavior. The aimed of this study was to develop exercise enhancement programs using the transtheoretical model for behavioral change. Research design divided into Three phases. In Phase I, the exercise promotion activities were drafted and studied the readiness of behavioral exercise changes among 165 participants. In Phase II, Development prototype program by using drafted in Phase I. The samples consisted of seventeen small groups of fifty-nine people with four modules. In Phase III, studied the effectiveness of enhanced exercise programs with eighty nine samples. The percentage and t-test statistics were used to analyze the data.

The results showed that after participating in activities at a statistical level of .05; (1) all of the samples had higher level of stage of changed the exercises than pre-intervention; (2) decisional balance: they had perceived the benefits of exercise (pros) higher and perceived losses (cons) lower than pre-intervention; (3) self-efficacy; they had higher confidence and lower perceived temptation; and (4) the samples had processed to behavior change better. Therefore, the guidelines for creating exercise programs need to promote the readiness in each phase of behavior change, decisional balance, self-efficacy and continuous encouragement which will enhance the exercise program effectively.
