The present investigation assessed Health Belief Model (HBM) variables and a
measure of physical activity for both younger and older adults. Results of
discriminant analyses suggest HBM variables and physical activity can predict
age-group membership with 89% accuracy. The younger sample (a = 88; M"=
21.5 years) was significantly more anxious about aging, perceived more barriers to
exercise, less control from powerful others, and more social support than the older
sample (a= 56; M = 71.8 years). For the younger sample, those who perceived
more benefits of exercise, had social support, were male, and were less anxious
about aging were more active. For the older sample, those who perceived more
benefits of exercise were more likely to be active.
