Roberta Frontini, researcher at ciTechCare, presented on May 29 an oral communication entitled “Comparing body image and exercise dependence between different fitness groups during COVID-19”, at the 1st International Conference on Human Kinesiology.
This work aimed to understand the levels of exercise dependence of 3 groups of practitioners: weight training, cross training and group classes in gyms, during the second confinement of COVID-19. Body image (in)satisfaction was also analysed. This work was developed from the combination of 3 project works by 4 students from the Sports and Wellbeing course at the Higher School of Education and Social Sciences at the Polytechnic of Leiria.
