The results of this research were summarized as follows： 1. 10.6% and 89.4% of the subjects exercise regularly and irregularly, respectively. The main types of exercise done by the subjects are Walking (48.4%), ladder-climbing (44.7%), and basketball (31.6%). 2. Better exercise behavior can be seen in male population, and in those who participate in sports clubs, who feel themselves “healthy”, and who watch exercise programs on TV. 3. Regular exercise is highly correlated with perceived self-efficacy for exercise, exercise social support from peer , self-regulation for exercise, enjoyment for exercise；while negatively correlated with perceived barriers for exercise. 4.
