RUI GOMES, A.. Psychological assessment in exercise: an interview guide for exercisers and instructors. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2013, vol.15, n.1, pp. 157-174. ISSN 1516-3687.

The practice of physical activity is associated to psychological, physical and social benefits. However, in the general population sport practice is still very low and the levels of dropout are very significant (Dishman, 1994; "Global strategy on diet, physical activity and health", 2004). So it becomes important to understand the factors that can cause these problems. This paper proposes two interview guides for exercisers and instructors that facilitate a deeper analysis of the psychological factors involved in exercise. The assessed domains were: 1. motivation, barriers and benefits (both interview guides), 2. attitudes, subjective norms, perceived control and intention, emotional experience, setting of practice (interview guide for practitioners), 3. factors influencing exercise, training of psychological factors, work conditions (interview guide for instructors). The areas evaluated allow a comprehensive analysis of the psychological factors involved in exercise practice, being also possible to make a comparison of data obtained with conceptual models in the literature on this topic.
