Abstract

Even with a greater access to food and advanced medical treatment compared to the post-war period, people still suffer from a multitude of physical diseases such as obesity, cancers, and cardiovascular diseases (Oja & Borms, 2004). At a psychological level, it is observed that approximately 450 million of individuals suffer from a mental or behavioral disorder (WHO, 2003). More interestingly, among those who are not suffering from referenced diseases or disabilities, there are increasing signs that less than optimal mental wellbeing is common in the population (i.e., emotional distress, low self-esteem, poor body image, chronic anxiety and stress) (Fox, Boutcher, Faulkner, & Biddle, 2000). In the context of defining what are the existing environments enhancing individuals’ flourishment, exercising is considered as a way to allow individuals and communities to thrive and prosper (Mutrie & Faulkner, 2004). However, until now, 30 to 60% of the modern societies do not exercise enough (Hallal et al., 2012). Thus, it is considered that the causal determinants of exercise health behavior have to be understood (Hall, & Fong, 2015). More specifically, a better understanding of the psychological mechanisms and barriers responsible for the emotional responses to physical activity is required (Ekkekakis, et al., 2008). In fact, predicting the exercise engagement through the intention to practice can explain 49% of the frequency and 42% of the duration of an exercise session. Nonetheless, considering the emotional appraisal as a moderator of the predictive model enhances the quality of the model (i.e. 66% of the frequency and 62% of the duration variabilities can be explained - Mohiyeddini, Pauli, & Bauer, 2009). One thing to highlight is that, when exercising, people do not respond in same way (Van Landuyt, Ekkekakis, Hall, & Petruzzello, 2000) and the positive/negative experience is hypothesized as depending on individuals’ characteristics (Ekkekakis, 2003). In such theoretical and societal backgrounds, the aim of my thesis work was to understand if the individuals’ Tolerance of exercise intensity could be considered as one of key psychological mechanisms explaining the positive or negative experience of exercise.
