Abstract

Physical fitness is one of the main therapeutic recommendations for patients with heart disease. Yet, adherence to physical activity regimen in both daily life and rehabilitation programs remains to be low. Elaborating on the analysis of factors associated with physical activity behavior, we noticed that the concept of adherence is complex, and its evaluation depends on a specific behavior and its settings. Evaluation of adherence to exercise in leisure time and exercise in the settings of cardiac rehabilitation program requires an application of different instruments. In this paper, we present a summary of findings from the literature analysis regarding types, settings and evaluation instruments of physical activity adherence in daily life and cardiac rehabilitation settings.
