A high percentage of people with chronic diseases do not experience adequate physical activity. The purpose of this study is to explore the factors regulating physical activity based on the theory of planned behavior (TPB). Additionally, we incorporated subjective health knowledge and education level with the TPB theoretical framework to act as moderators. Data were collected from 639 individuals with chronic diseases in our survey. Results revealed that subjective norms and perceived behavioral control were statistically significant predictors of physical activity intentions, with the perceived behavioral control having the strongest effect on the intention to partake in physical activity. Attitude had no significant effect. Subjective health knowledge negatively moderated the relationship between perceived behavioral control and intention, while education level negatively moderated the relationship of subjective norms-intention among people with chronic diseases in this study. The results provide guidance to doctors and health practitioners to develop interventions tailored to assisting chronic patients with different levels of subjective health knowledge and education, thus requiring the medical professionals to consider health education carefully.
