Exercise Adherence is a current concern in our country today. Many adults work an average of forty hours a week limiting time spent for exercise. People leave work tired and have family members or other responsibilities after work, preventing them from working out. Individuals are not able to maintain an exercise program past a few weeks. The ones who do make it over half a year loose the motivation, will power, creativity and energy to want to continue. There are three major limiting factors that keep individuals from adhering to exercise and these include, money (access), time and motivation (extrinsic and intrinsic). Without the support from others and some form of self-efficacy many people feel lost, stuck and never find a program that fits their own interests. This presentation will provide the recourses needed to help hold individuals accountable with their fitness and will not take any extra time out of their day. If individuals have the accessibility, motivation and time built into their day to train with a personal trainer during their work day at work. Then they will ultimately be able to adhere to an exercise program specific to their own needs and provide greater coverage on their health care. Adhering to exercise and having the access of a personal trainer in a structured work environment can overall lead to greater health and wellbeing.
