The purpose of this study is to analyse the convergent factors which influence on the stages of exercise behavior change of middle-aged women. 200 middle-aged women surveyed, 41 to 64years old, is residing D city, Chung-Nam province, who understand the purpose of this study and agree to participate in this study. This study data is analyzed by using frequency, percentage, standard deviation, t-test, $x^2$ test and Logistic regression analysis. The study show that the social support factors(${\beta}$=.998, p=.010) and the motives of exercise(${\beta}$=3.407, p<.001) among middle aged women have an effect on the stages of exercise behavior change meaningfully. That is, the social support of middle aged women who have exercise behavior change is 2.5 times higher than middle aged women who don't have exercise behavior change, and the motives of exercise is 20.1 times higher. Based on theoretical ground, this study suggests that government and community seek programs for promoting the exercise behavior, considering the motives of exercise and the social supports.
