The current study was designed to investigate the influence of choice of exercise program on exercise adherence. The two exercise programs included 1) traditional exercise at a fitness centre or 2) lifestyle exercise-walking using a pedometer to track steps. Biological and psychological indicators were examined to investigate the effect of choice in a sample of sedentary adults.

The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
Alternating sets of exercise that work out different muscle groups and that also alternate between aerobic and anaerobic exercises, which, when combined together, offer an overall program to improve strength, stamina, balance, or functioning.
Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.
A type of strength-building exercise program that requires the body muscle to exert a force against some form of resistance, such as weight, stretch bands, water, or immovable objects. Resistance exercise is a combination of static and dynamic contractions involving shortening and lengthening of skeletal muscles.
Tapering-off physical activity from vigorous to light, to gradually return the body to pre-exercise condition and metabolic state.
