The aim of this descriptive correlational study was to determine factors related to EXERCISE performance according to the THEORY OF PLANNED BEHAVIOR in female STUDENTS in 2009.Materials and methods: 444 female STUDENTS were selected by stratified sampling method. Data collection tool was a questionnaire including 6 parts: 1- external variables, 2-attitiude to EXERCISE, 3-subjective norms of EXERCISE, 4- perceived control behavior toward EXERCISE, 5- intention to EXERCISE, and 6- EXERCISE. Content validity index, face validity and reliability of the tool were identified by internal consistency and test-retest methods respectively. Data were analyzed by SPSS (ver. 15). Mean, standard deviation, distribution of frequency, regression and path analysis were calculated in data analysis.Findings: Attitude and control of perceived behavior were positively correlated with intention to EXERCISE and subjective norms, controlled perceived behavior regarding EXERCISE as well as intention to EXERCISE were positively correlated with EXERCISE performance.
