Michelle Segar on exercise motivation in Columbus Dispatch

February 7, 2016

CPO Faculty Affiliate Michelle Segar’s exercise motivation research is cited in the Columbus Dispatch article, “Making workout fun boos motivation, but health goals help, too.”

The article quotes research from Segar’s book, No Sweat: How the Simple Science of Motivation Can Bring You a Lifetime of Fitness: “Logic doesn’t motivate us; emotions do…In other words, people who exercise for enjoyment stick with it more than those who do so for medical reasons.”
