El propósito de este estudio fue analizar la conducta de ejercicio y de promoción de la salud en adultos mayores taiwaneses que participaban regularmente en cursos de ejercicio en un centro comunitario de cuidado de ancianos. Este análisis se hizo según la Teoría del Comportamiento Planificado. Se realizó una encuesta a 100 adultos mayores (más de 65 años) de Taiwán central. Después de eliminar los cuestionarios no válidos, 87 cuestionarios se recuperaron con éxito (tasa de respuesta válida = 87%). Los datos del cuestionario se analizaron mediante análisis descriptivo, análisis factorial confirmatorio y modelos de ecuaciones estructurales. Se encontró que la capacidad para mantener el ejercicio fue el factor más importante para participar en actividades de promoción de la salud. La participación en cursos de ejercicios para la salud en un centro de atención comunitario puede ayudar a los adultos mayores a mantener una buena salud física y puede aumentar su interacción social y su participación en la comunidad. Por lo tanto, los cursos comunitarios de ejercicios para la salud son una estrategia eficaz para mantener el comportamiento de ejercicio regular de los adultos mayores en Taiwán.
