The 2012 Academy meeting focused on research related to increasing levels of physical activity and promoting persistence. Speakers agreed that answers would be hard to come by but that progress was possible. Emphases for potential solutions ranged from the cellular to the cultural, from neural mechanisms to symbolic processes, from particle physics to philosophy. Strategies for intervention were diverse and refected a series of dynamical tensions—behavioral and nonbehavioral, cognitive and noncognitive, traditional and nontra-ditional, environmental and motivational, and finally medical in contrast to educational. It is likely, given the complexities inherent in increasing movement behaviors and assuring persistence, that various blends of solutions emerging from multiple points on the disciplinary landscape and honoring truths that run across these strategic tensions will be needed.

throughout gameplay as visual persistence performance feedback. Researchers defined exercise persistence (as a measure of motivation) as the primary dependent variable, measured in seconds from the beginning of the workout portion of the experimental session (ie, 5-min postwarm-up at 50% heart rate maximum

paradigm investigating partnering with an out-group member, as well as research on stereotypes about Black males and their athletic ability, we hypothesized that White male participants with a stronger Black partner would demonstrate significantly less exercise persistence compared with participants with a

influential on physical activity behavior. This study aimed to identify social factors that lead to persistence of physical activity behavior. This study used differential equations to predict exercise persistence using data from the United States Military Academy. The system of differential equations

., 2019 ). For instance, in studies that use the abdominal plank exercise, persistence is the amount of time the participants can hold the abdominal plank. Intensity of exercise, as an outcome measure, is often utilized in a research design in which the task is limited to a fixed amount of time or a set

Social cognitive variables known to be related to exercise adherence (i.e., self-regulatory efficacy for exercise management, perceived struggle to manage exercise, persistence in exercise efforts) were also examined and compared between (a) individuals reporting
