The Marketing Scales website is a gold mine of information.  It is the only source that helps me understand the psychometric quality of the instruments used in past research.  I recommend that researchers bookmark this site . . . they will be back!

Five, nine-point Likert-type items compose the scale and measure a person’s confidence that one will successfully manage his/her health by engaging in a certain activity.  (The activity can be specified by the researcher.)

With four, nine-point items, the scale measures a person’s belief that joining a particular fitness club will help reduce health risks.

A person’s intention to participate in a particular exercise at a certain level is measured with three, nine-point Likert-type items.

Four, seven-point items measure a person’s knowledge of and experience with a particular physical exercise.

The level of fatigue a person feels after engaging in an exercise is measured in the scale with three, seven-point items.

How much a person jogs and views it is as part of his/her identity is measured in this scale with four, ten-point items.

The scale measures a mixture of values, attitudes, and behaviors that indicate the degree to which a person treats health as more important than gratifying one's desires or vice versa.  Four, six-point semantic differentials compose the scale.

The scale measures how strongly a person believes that certain habits related to one's diet and physical activity eventually lead to poor health.

A 12-item, seven-point Likert-type scale is used to measure the degree of control one believes he/she has over his/her health-related behaviors. The emphasis is on engaging in the behaviors rather than the outcome of those behaviors.

The scale uses three statements and a seven-point Likert-type response format to measure the extent to which something has helped a person want to exercise regularly. The motivating factor in the study by Nan (2008) was a public service announcement. However, the items seem to be amenable for use with other stimuli.
