BLAZQUEZ MANZANO, A.; LEON-MEJIA, A.  and  FEU MOLINA, S.. Intentions and practice of physical activity in Spanish teachers. CPD [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.2, pp.163-170. ISSN 1989-5879.

The main goal of this paper is to compare intention of being physically active with actual weekly practice of physical exorcize among 451 preschool and primary teachers who participated in this study (162 males and 353 females). We explore this topic in relation to social and labour variables. The adapted and validated Spanish version of the Intention to be Physically Active Scale (Hein, Müür and Koka, 2004) indicated high internal consistency (α=.91). Further inferential analyses showed that women engage less in physical activity compared to men. Also, single teachers without kids scored higher in both intention and actual practice of physical activity in comparison with those who are married and have kids. Intention and practice are correlated and these results are interpreted in terms of differences in leisure-time, as well as in terms of social variables related to spare time.

Keywords : Preschool and Primary teachers; Physical activity; Intention of being Physically Active.
