Summary or Abstract : Almost half of the adult U.S. population do not engage in any regular physical activity. This trend is dangerous since physical activity has been identified as a behavior linked to reducing and preventing chronic diseases. Counseling by a primary-care provider is one strategy to increase the number of individuals who participate in physical activity. Currently, the literature does not provide an in-depth explanation as to why primary-care providers are or are not counseling on physical activity.Using the theory of planned behavior as a guide, elicitation interviews were conducted. A questionnaire was also developed to identify primary-care providers' behavioral determinants for counseling their patients on engaging in physical activity.Elicitation interviews yielded determinants of behavior found in the current body of literature. A questionnaire was developed to analyze theoretical constructs and to identify influences on behavioral intention. Results were conflicting compared with similar findings from the literature. Subjective norms had the greatest influence on intention, which is not typically found.Findings from this study suggest that subjective norms have considerable influence on intention. Further research should be conducted in this area to identify specific determinants that have an impact on an individual's intention to counsel patients on physical activity. Future interventions based on this information can target the provider and develop strategies based on identified determinants of primary-care providers' behavior, which can positively influence patient health status through increased physical activity..
