The purpose of this study is to explore the relationship between sleep quality and the exercise participation behavior of college students. The objects of this study consisted of 1,124 college students in the central region of Taiwan – 674 boys, mean age 22.6 ± 1.6 years; 450 girls, mean age 22.4 ± 1.8 years. The Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) and a exercise participation behavior questionnaire were employed in this research. Test data obtained were processed through the SPSS for windows 18.0 Statistical Package, and then a comparative analysis was conducted by using descriptive statistics, single-factor analysis of variance, chi-square test, and the Schaeffer multiple comparisons. The significance level was set at α = .05. The results are as follows. First, the sleep score of 56.1% students is higher than 5 points, meaning that the college students in the central region generally have poor sleep quality. Second, taking physical education class appears to be the major method of participation in sports and the exercise time mainly falls between 5 and 7 in the evening. Third, the students exercise once a week, 31-60 minutes each time, and display 50-60% exercise intensity. Fourth, health management and weight management are regarded as the main participation motivation, school campus is the major sports venues, and the favorite sports types include ball games and aerobic exercise. Fifth, students hope that courses like exercise-to-lose-weight and skill-learning can be offered in physical education. The conclusion is that the sleep quality of the college students seems poor, and going to PE class turns out to be the main way of doing exercise. What’s more, students should spend more time exercising. Researchers suggest that in physical education students be trained to cultivate the habit of doing exercise regularly, that relevant courses be opened for students to attend, and that students be encouraged to increase sleep time and improve sleep quality in order to improve and maintain their health.
