    A model is put forward that seeks to describe the psychological consequences of exercise. The model indicates the relative time course of events and the interaction and feedback between different effects. It seeks to explain both the difficulties of beginning exercise and the phenomenon of exercise addiction and suggests intervention points for teachers and health educators.
