dc.description.abstract Purpose of this study was to analyze the effect that knowledge of exercise benefits had on attitude, motivation and exercise participation in individuals within the age group of 18-50 years. 51 college students, 23 on-campus staff, and 26 community members participated in this study. The participants responded to four questionnaires: the Exercise Motivation Inventory (EMI-2), the International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ), the Locus of Causality for Exercise Scale (LCE), and a self-made Knowledge Questionnaire. The results of this study showed that knowledge of exercise benefits did not affect physical activity participation (p=0.591) and atti-tude towards exercise (p = 0.605) but significantly affected motivation to exercise (p= 0.0005). It was concluded that knowledge of exercise benefits was not the primary factor affecting physical activity participation. en_US
