Journal of School Health, v72 n9 p374-80 Nov 2002
Surveyed adolescents at single-sex high schools to examine whether perceptions of physical activity differed by gender. The most helpful cue to physical activity for males and females was having a friend to exercise with. Parental encouragement and having a parent who exercised were also helpful. Wanting to do other things was a common barrier to exercise. Perceived cues, benefits, and barriers to physical activity differed significantly by gender. (SM)
