As sustainable methods of maintaining participation rates are key to becoming a healthy and active population (Beauchamp, 2018; Bruner & Martin, 2019), this project is aiming to understand the correlation between psychosocial variables (e.g., sources of self-efficacy) and peoples’ cognition, affect, and behavior around which salient social identities develop and how this identification may predicts adherence to PA. Evaluating the generalizability of a social identity approach regarding individuals’ PA adherence and the mediating effect of self-efficacy will be beneficial for the current research field as well as practitioners. The investigation should provide insights and further recommendations for practitioners how to promote participation and handle adherence. Therefore, the goal of this study is to determine social identity and self-categorization effects which support extensive PA behavior (i.e., adherence) and which impact self-efficacy has on this relationship.
