Abstract:The central goal of this study is to improve understanding of habitual exercise behaviour. First, personal values are linked to individual‟s health-related motive orientations (HRMO), and may offer insights into how to promote better any health-related behaviour (e.g., healthy eating, regular exercise, or stress-relieving activities). Second, this paper addresses the effects of personal values on habitual exercise behaviour via two mediators, HRMO and attitude toward exercising, and may provide deeper understanding of the underlying motivations of individuals for regular exercise. Third, this study investigates the independent effects of HRMO on exercise behaviour via attitude toward exercising, checking also if these relationships are moderated by individual‟s regulatory focus
