 In this study, the association between the change of behavioral modification stage of exercise and the psychosocial factors of middle-aged and elderly persons who participated in the health promotion activities for one year were examined. Assessments were conducted through follow-up activities over a 1 year period and a 3 month period after the completion of the activities. Of the 18 people who participated in the study, 10 underwent behavioral modification in the active period, and the remaining eight were not observed. Through multiple- and inter-group comparisons, psychosocial benefits of receiving positive social support through family and friends exhibited more efficacy than exercise improvement. Thus, to enrich social networks and social support it is necessary for the promotion of behavioral modification of movement.
