The purpose of the study was to test the cross-cultural concurrent validity of the stages of exercise change scale (SECS) in Chinese college students. The original SECS was translated into Chinese (C-SECS). Students from four Chinese universities (N = 1843) participated in the study. The leisure-time exercise (LTE) questionnaire was used to provide data to test the concurrent validation of the C-SECS. Results indicated an increase in total LTE across the five stages of exercise changes. This study provided evidence of C-SECS cross-cultural concurrent validity. (Contains 2 tables.)
