Linear regression analysis were performed adjusted for age. Results: Social support from parents and friends influenced positively on vigorous free time physical activity in Spanish adolescents (β = 0.226 and β = 0.285 in boys, and β = 0.167 and β = 0.181 in girls, for parents and friends support respectively), and on moderate free time physical activity levels in girls (β = 0.195 and β = 0.200 respectively).
