  1. Daily primary school physical education : effects on physical activity during adult life.

    Article - En anglais

    Purpose 

    The purpose of this investigation was to study the influence of a daily primary school physical education program on physical activity (PA) level, attitudes toward physical activity, and perceptions of barriers to physical activity during adulthood.

    Methods 

    We compared two groups : 1) an experimental group of men and women (N=147) who had received five physical education sessions per week throughout their 6 yr of primary school education in the early 1970s ; and 2) a control group, drawn from the data bank of the Québec Health Survey, and matched for age, gender, and socioeconomic profile (N=720).

    Experimental and control subjects filled out an identical questionnaire about their current physical activity level, their attitudes toward PA, and their perceptions of barriers to PA.

    The control group was stratified to obtain the same sociodemographic profile as the experimental group.

    Results 

    Our principal results were : 1) a frequency distribution that showed a higher rate of physical activity in experimental women than in control women : 2) similar intentions to exercise and attitudes toward exercise in the experimental and control groups, with no differences in opportunities for exercising or in the support received from their family and friends ; and 3) a lower prevalence of regular smokers in experimental men than in control men.
