Title: Motivational factors for physical activity in the elders
Author: Parreira, J.; Bartolomeu, Raul F.; Monteiro, António M.
Abstract: Hoy en día, la población de edad avanzada es consciente de los beneficios de la práctica de la actividad física, lo que lleva a una creciente demanda de programas especializados de actividad física en los centros urbanos o de auto-práctica recreativa. Sin embargo, estas personas abandonan fácilmente esos programas o la práctica recreativa y vuelven a un estilo de vida sedentario. Un factor clave para evitar esta omisión es mantenerlos motivados para practicar y permanecer en los programas. Objetivos: Este estudio tiene como objetivo comprender los factores motivacionales que llevan a las personas mayores a la actividad física a fin de mejorar los programas existentes para satisfacer mejor las necesidades de esta población.Nowadays the elderly population is well aware of the benefits of the practice of physical activity, which leads to an increasing demand for specialized physical activity programs in urban centers or recreational self-practice. However, people easily quit those programs or recreational self-practice and return to a sedentary lifestyle. A key factor to avoid this quittance is to keep them motivated to practice and stay in the programs. Objectives: This study aims to understand the motivational factors that lead older people to physical activity in order to improve existing programs so to better meet the needs of this population.
