BALBINOTTI, Marcos Alencar Abaide et al. Motivation of regular physical and sporting activities practice: a comparative study between obeses, overweight, and other students. Motriz: rev. educ. fis. (Online) [online]. 2011, vol.17, n.3, pp.384-394. ISSN 1980-6574.

The main intent of the present study is compare the motivation levels of regular physical activities practice of three differents scholars groups from elementary and middle schools of Erechim/RS municipal district: Obeses, overweight, and Eutrophic. Then, besides the anthropometry evaluations - corporal mass and height - was applied the "Inventário de motivação à prática regular de atividades físicas e esportivas" (IMPRAFE-54) ( BALBINOTTI; BARBOSA, 2006 ). The results varied considerably in nominal values and the main motivation dimensions were as follows: Obeses (health); overweight (esthetics; health; joy); Eutrophic (health; esthetics; joy). In comparing inter-group (obese, overweight, Eutrophic), the Aesthetic dimension stood out in the difference between the groups of overweight and obese. Hope these results might contribute for the pedagogy practice in scholar physical education.
