Because people in general are most likely aware of these benefits, one way to understand the modest uptake would be to study motivational aspects of these behaviors. This short communication paper is a summary of a PhD thesis entitled: “You don’t have to love it - Exploring the mechanisms of exercise motivation using self-determination theory in a digital context.
Nyckelord: exercise; motivation; self-determination
