dc.description.abstract The focus of the research study was to investigate the relationship of perceived benefits and perceived barriers to the health behaviors of exercise, nutritional eating practices, and elimination of smoking. Perceived barriers and benefits were measured by a tool developed by Sechrist , Walker, & Pender (1987).A randomized sample of 300 adults living in Indiana were surveyed. The adults were employed by Hooks-Super X, Inc. and were randomly selected from a population of 3200 adults employee.Variables of exercise, nutritional eating practices, and smoking behavior were examined to determine if a relationship existed between the variables and perceived barriers and benefits. Individual items measured the frequency of the variables.Three-way analysis of variance demonstrated that there was a relationship between exercise and perceived barriers and benefits. Chi Square Goodness of Fit demonstrated that age evidenced a significance relationship with exercise.The findings of the study revealed a relationship between the Health Promotion Model and exercise and perceived barriers and perceived benefits. en_US
