dc.description.abstract The following project sought to find negative correlates of exercise, such as exercise dependence or exercise addiction, and to determine how they relate to well-being and eating behaviors. The study also asked questions about things that could aid in the prediction of who may become dependent on or addicted to exercise by asking for a person's perceived happiness, frequency of exercise, reasons for exercising, and eating behavior. Participants were volunteer college students. Results of the study concluded that there is a negative relationship between eating disorders and well-being, and that individuals exhibiting an eating disorder are more inclined to be addicted to or dependent on exercise. Limitations and suggestions for future studies are included. en_US M.A. en_US
