Sažetak
Introduction Since low level of fittnes associated with childhood obesity is a major public health concern there is growing interest in all of the factors which could influence children participation in exercise. Motivation for exercise is recently among the most important ones. We tried to establish the relationships between different levels of motor fitness and intrinsic motivation in children aged 9 and 10 yrs. Methods Seventy sixth children aged 9 and 10 yrs participated in study. Motor fitness was assessed using the 6 motor, 1 functional and 5 anthropometry tasks. Body mass index, as well as sum of skinfolds were also calculated. Intrinsic motivation was evaluated with the Participation Motives Inventory (PMI ; Gill et all., 1983.). Fitness scores were standardized and summarized in overall motor score, based on that score children were further divided into low, average and high ability group. Differences according to gender were established in the both domains. Cronbach ALPHA was calculated to establish the consistency of PMI scales. ANOVA was used to determine the differences in motivation for participation between low, average and high motor ability groups. Results Children differentiated by gender in three motor and one functional test in favor of boys. There was also differences in motive subscales ˝team˝ and ˝skill/mastery˝- in both boys scored higher. Overall, children scored higher in subscales ˝skill/mastery˝, ˝avoidance of boredom˝, ˝achievment˝and ˝team˝. ANOVA established differences between low, average and high motor ability groups in participation motivation. Namely, low and average groups scored the same but high ability groups showed significantly higher values in ¨skill/mastery˝ (F=4.64 ; p=.01), ¨fitness˝(F=4.78 ; p=.01), and ˝team˝ (F=4.11 ; p=.02) subscales. In high ability group BMI was significantly lower than in other groups. Cronbach ALPHA coefficients were rather low and ranged from .31 to .66. Discussion The results indicate that to have fun was not the only reason for participation in exercise. Although rankings varied, all three groups identified similar motives for participation. Children with better fitness performance showed higher motives for participation than children with lower fitness scores. References Gill, D., Gross, J., & Huddleston, S. (1983).
