Exercise Habit of International students
Klinea et al. (2021) concluded that physical activity is linked to a lower risk of
coronary heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and all-
cause mortality. The occurrence of chronic condition is a serious public health
issue. Despite the benefits, research has shown a significant decrease in bodily
interest and an increase in sedentary behavior at a young age when attending
university, as determined by Small et al. (2013). Physical activity levels declined
with the transition from high school to college, according to a survey of 233
undergraduate students; 65 percent of students reported engaging in regular
vigorous and 26 percent in regular moderate physical activity during high school.
However, the survey revealed that during their college years, 38 percent of
students participated in regular strenuous and 20 percent moderate Physical
Activities (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 2015). A number of causes
could be to blame for the drop-in activity. Students have more autonomy in their
daily life as they progress from high school to college. According to Fedewa and
Ahn (2011) epidemiological studies, physical activity decreases as autonomy
develops throughout middle and high school. One long-term study of college
students found that psychosocial factors, as well as residence (on-campus or off-
campus living), influence student physical activity levels and related mediators
(e.g. self-efficacy, perceived benefits). Other variables could include increased
time demands (e.g., employment, class time) and varying access to active sites.
According to a report from Qian, Yang and Wang (2021) found that exercise
behavior could develop into positive exercise habit through a direct path, single
mediators of demand or satisfaction, or a chain mediator from demand to
satisfaction. When exercise behavior is present, the presence of demand appears
to be treated as a clue to stimulate memory, and satisfaction appears to be used
as feedback to motivate the next exercise-choosing phase. After repeating this
method, reactions to these hints will come naturally with cognitive shortcuts, and
the activity will become habitual.
The previous study found no information about student exercise time,
deterioration of mental health due to study and work pressure, reasons for
student activism, or the benefits of consistent exercise. Therefore, this study was
needed to fill the gap.

The purpose of this research was to look into international students' fitness
attitudes and behaviors. According to the hypothesis, time availability is the most
important element in affecting international students' physical activity behavior.

Exercise Habit of International students Klinea et al.
