Attitudes to physical activity

The linkage between physical activity and obesity and wellbeing are now well documented. However, the impact of physical activity is not just driven by establishing how many children are meeting the Chief Medical Officer’s guidelines of an average of at least 60 minutes per day across the week and how many are less active. Furthermore, physical activity includes a complex set of behaviors that take place in a variety of settings with a wide range of purposes and intentions. It is naïve to see physical activity as a single entity, especially when we are investigating potential solutions to inactivity. We believe that profiles of physical activity that reflect different elements and settings of physical activity offer a more helpful picture For example, a child's attitude towards sport and physical activity e.g. the motives and reasons for being active and activity enjoyment is linked to a child's resilience and wellbeing. This survey covers the key attitudes and motives for a person taking part in sport and physical activity
