Three questions guided a literature review of the transtheoretical model (TTM) as applied to exercise to address the evidence for stage-matched interventions, the description of priority populations, and the identification of valid TTM measurement tools. One-hundredand-fifty studies were reviewed. Results indicate preliminary support for the use of stage-matched exercise interventions. Most studies have focused on White, middle-class, female populations, limiting the generalizability of their… Expand

The transtheoretical model and exercise behaviour of members in fitness clubs
Introduction: The transtheoretical model of behaviour change (TTM) is often used to understand changes in health related behaviour, like exercise. The applicability of this model to exerciseExpand
The transtheoretical model as applied to dietary behaviour and outcomes
TLDR
Evidence of the effectiveness of TTM-based interventions is not conclusive, but valid and reliable staging algorithms are available for fruit and vegetable consumption and dietary fat intake, and are being developed for other dietary behaviours. Expand
The Effectiveness of the Transtheoretical Model to Improve Physical Activity in Healthy Adults: A Systematic Review.
TLDR
There is inconsistent evidence to support the use of interventions based on the transtheoretical model to improve PA in adult populations, and interventions were more successful when materials were delivered via in-person counseling and when study participants were in the precontemplation or contemplation phases at baseline. Expand
Transtheoretical Model for Physical Activity in Older Adults: Systematic Review
TLDR
TTM is a useful and suitable behavior model in creating, developing, and evaluating interventions with the aim of acquiring and improving PA habits in the older adults, and more studies including the four behavioral change dimensions are needed. Expand
Validation of the Measures of the Transtheoretical Model for Exercise in an Adult African-American Sample
TLDR
Results support the use of transtheoretical model measures for exercise in tailored interventions to increase exercise among African-Americans, except for the cons scale, which requires additional development. Expand
Matched or nonmatched interventions based on the transtheoretical model to promote physical activity. A meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials
TLDR
TTM-based interventions significantly improved PA behavior, and their efficacy was not moderated by SOC but by the TTM theoretical constructs. Expand

Transtheoretical Model-based Nursing Intervention on Lifestyle Change: A Review Focused on Intervention Delivery Methods.
TLDR
It is necessary to develop a variety of ways to use ICT in tailored nursing interventions and to use TTM frameworks and concepts to identify ways in which information technology is used in the TTM-based research. Expand

TLDR
A potentially influential effect of barriers to exercise on different stages of behaviour was evident and partial support for the use of the transtheoretical model in a UK sample was found. Expand

TLDR
Overall, the evidence in support of the TTM as applied to tobacco use was strong, with supportive studies being more numerous and of a better design than nonsupportive studies. Expand

TLDR
Results support the application of the transtheoretical model (TTM) in the physical activity domain by using the quantitative method of meta-analysis and there are sufficient data to confirm that stage membership is associated with different levels of physical activity, self-efficacy, pros and cons, and processes of change.

TLDR
The patterns found across the stages of change were consistent with the theoretical predictions of the TTM and replicated the patterns observed in previous studies. Expand

The transtheoretical model has been used to understand the stages individuals progress through, and the cognitive and behavioral processes they use while changing health behaviors. The modelExpand

TLDR
The results support some of the assumptions of the TTM but raise questions about the predicted relationships between stages of change and processes ofchange and between self-efficacy and processesof change at each stage of change. Expand

Impact of a transtheoretical model on the psychosocial factors affecting exercise among workers.
TLDR
The results post-test of the experimental group showed that perceived exercise benefit, perceived exercise barriers, and exercise self-efficacy improved significantly, and perceived exercise Benefit and Exercise self- efficacy were significantly higher than those of the control group post- test while perceived exercise barrier were significantly lower than those in the control groups post-Test.

Application of the Transtheoretical Model to physically active adults.
TLDR
Physically active individuals should be studied over time to determine if targeting behavioral processes of change will enhance long-term exercise adherence, and predicted differences in TTM components were only partially supported. Expand

TLDR
Using the Transtheoretical Model of behavior change as a theoretical framework, a Stage of Exercise Scale (SOES) was developed and showed promise for increasing the understanding of the exercise initiation and maintenance process. Expand
