Summary I examined the psychosocial factors motivating Australian women's physical activity. Generally, a focus on appearance enhancement failed to maintain physical activity over time and was associated with negative psychological indicators such as disordered eating, stress, anxiety and depression. Activity maintenance was best achieved by women with more diverse motivations regardless of their choice of activity type.
