Abstract A plethora of studies apply Self-Determination Theory to explain Physical Activity (PA) behaviour and to inform interventions that aim to change PA behaviour. There is, however, a lack of clarity regarding how SDT-derived interventions to promote PA are developed. Although the EQUATOR Network has provided a standardised method of reporting intervention protocols, as well as the Medical Research Council’s (2008) Developing and evaluating complex interventions facilitating an increase in feasibility and pilot studies prior to the conduction of a randomised control trial, the initial process of intervention development is relatively under-reported. The purpose of this paper is threefold. First, to critically review the effectiveness of SDT for promoting PA in clinical populations. Second, to discuss issues relating to the development of SDT-derived interventions for PA promotion. Finally, to provide research and practical recommendations for developing SDT-derived PA interventions in a contextually-relevant manner.
