ALVAREZ RIVERA, L.; CUEVAS FERRERA, R.; LARA POT, A.  and  GONZALEZ HERNANDEZ, J.. Physical self-concept differences in practitioners and non-practitioners of physical activity in college students. CPD [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.2, pp.27-34. ISSN 1989-5879.

The present investigation objective was to identify the differences of physical self-concept in regular practitioners and non-practitioners of physical activity in college students. A group of 208 college student between 18 and 31 years participated, of which 49% perform physical activity on a regular basis and 51% do not practice regularly or do not perform any physical activity, and the Physical Self-Concept Questionnaire of Moreno & Cervelló (2005) was applied. In all dimensions of physical self-concept, as well as the general scales of physical self-concept and general self-concept, statistically significant differences were found obtaining p-values below α = .05, this indicates that the physical self-perceptions and general self-perceptions are measured by physical activity, so it sustains the importance of physical activity in the self-concept of college students.

Keywords : Physical Self-Concept; differences; college students; regular physical activity.
