The awareness of the importance of exercise as a panacea to chronic diseases has continued to grow. In spite of this popularity, most people do not exercise or exercise enough to accrue the gains. Study indicated that exercise imagery has assisted athletes to do well in their various sports. The researchers were of the opinion that since it has helped athletes to achieve self- determination and higher performance, it should assist exercisers to attain self-efficacy and therefore motivate them to continue to participate in exercise. For the study, a total of one hundred and fifty students of the University of Ibadan were used. The sporting events for the study include athletics, swimming, football, volleyball, handball, badminton, basketball, table tennis, cricket, hockey etc. The age cadres of different levels of the teams were used. A standardized questionnaire with likert scaling method was used. The demographic data was analyzed using descriptive statistic of mean, standard deviation, frequency and percentage, while the inferential statistic of Pearson Moment Correlation (PPMC) was used to analyze the hypothesis to arrive at 0.05 alpha level. The results showed that there is significant relationship between exercise imagery and exercise self-efficacy (r=0.311**, N=150, P<.01).
