Online Submission, M.A. Thesis, West Visayas State University
This descriptive study determined the exercise motivation and exercise attribution of recreational athletes in one of the major cities in Panay Island. A total of 75 purposively selected respondents who are regular members in a particular club for at least a year and have finished at least a college degree participated in the study. To gather data a researcher-made instrument for exercise attribution and the Exercise Motivations Inventory (EMI-2) by Markland and Ingledew 1997 (Anshel, 2003) were used. Mean, rank and standard deviation were the descriptive statistics while the Mann-Whitney U Test, Kruskal-Wallis Test, and Spearman Rank Correlation Coefficient Analysis, all set at 0.05 level of significance, were the inferential statistics. The results revealed that whether taken as an entire group or classified according to age, gender and employment type the exercise motivation of recreational athletes was "personal enhancement." Their exercise attribution as an entire group and when classified as to gender was work related, including those who were self-employed, were working in government agencies and were 30 years old and below. However, the exercise attribution of those who were 31 yrs. old and above and working in private agencies was "health-related." No significant difference existed in the exercise motivation of recreational athletes when they were classified according to age and gender but a significant difference existed when they were group as to employment type. Similarly, a significant difference existed in their exercise attribution when they were classified according to age but no significant difference existed when they were grouped as to gender and employment type. A significant relationship existed between the recreational athletes' exercise motivation and exercise attribution.
