The purpose of this study was to investigate physical self-esteem across the four phases of cardiac rehabilitation. A total of 32 subjects between the ages of 55-75 (M = 22, F = l0), 2 in Phase I, 7 in Phase II, 4 in Phase III, and 19 in Phase IV) volunteered for this study. The Perceived Self- Perception Profile-Adults (PSPP-A), and the Perceived Importance Profile (PIP) instruments were administered to all subjects. The mean and standard deviation of the subjects were indicative of a mature cardiac rehabilitation population. A one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) performed on the data indicated that there were no significant differences between phases for each subdomain for both the PSPP-A and the associated PIP (p > .05). However the Appearance subscale on the PSPP-A approached significance (p = .07). Additionally, the Functional Capacity subscale in the PIP approached significance (p = .09). Future investigations incorporating expansions and modifications to the current investigation are suggested to accurately access physical self-esteem in cardiac rehabilitation programs.
