Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of a nine week physical fitness education program on attitudes toward physical activity and exercise in obese females. Thirty- eight women, aged 20 to 50, participated in the nine week study. The study comprised of one experimental group of obese females, one control group of obese females, and one control group of randomly selected females. All three of the groups were pretested and post-tested using the Corbin Attitude Test. The experimental group received a nine week educational program consisting of fitness concepts. Results from the ANCOVA suggested that there is no significant relationship between physical fitness education and attitudes toward physical activity and exercise in obese females.
