Abstract
By means of the Phrasal Change Theory Scale of Stage of Change Theory and the Exercise Benefits and Barriers Scale of Health Belief Model, data were collected on 320 urban residents. Through using the method of literature consultation and mathematical statistics, this paper analyzes the perception of exercise benefits and barriers in urban residents, along with the relativity with different exercise stages. The research results show below: a) These samples either agreed or strongly agreed with most of the benefit items, reflecting that they felt adequate cognizance about benefits of regular exercising, although they have not exclusively participant exercise activity. b) These samples fairly agreed with many of the barrier items, this is consistent with suggestion that perceived barriers could be more influential on behavior than perceived benefits. c) The external factor such as exercise milieu could change exercise behavior in the short-time, not a long-term effect, but the internal factor or extrinsic motivation played an important part in changing and maintaining behavior. And some way of thinking and suggestion to step in exercise intervention was given.
