The majority of the adults in the public do not engage in exercise on a regular basis. One of the reasons suggested for this lack of engagement is the lack of motivation for such active behaviors (Godin et al., 2008). Recent studies have demonstrated that exposure to general action concepts (e.g., “active,” “energy”) rather than inactive concepts (e.g., “still”, “stop”) resulted in an increased likelihood of participating in an active task. Moreover, when participants were exposed to active concepts and initially given an active task, they were less active in the following tasks compared to the control participants ( Albarracin et al., 2008). In their study Hepler, Wang and Albarracin found that when engaged in an active task (playing a video game), participants' total amount of time spent exercising at the end of the experiment was lower compared to the participants who only passively observed the video game. Furthermore, for the participants in the active task group, the primes for action or inaction had no effect, whereas in the passively observant group, the participants who were exposed to the inaction goal priming, spent less time exercising than the action goal priming (Hepler, Wang & Albarracin, 2012). The present study aims to replicate this study by Hepler, Wang, and Albarracin and further discuss the findings.
