dc.description.abstractThe overall aim of this study is to analyse the physical health, by testing body mass index, and mental health, by measuring anxiety and self-esteem levels, of two hundred participants. A quantitative research design was completed for this research and therefore each participant completed a questionnaire in which one hundred of these participants exercised regularly and one hundred engaged in little or no exercise. Correlations and t-tests were completed using SPSS 17 for windows in order to examine the BMI, anxiety and self-esteem levels of each participant. The results showed a significant difference that BMI levels and anxiety levels were higher and self-esteem levels were lower for those who did little or no exercise in comparison to those who exercised regularly. The results also concluded that an astounding quantity of participants were unhappy with their body image and an overwhelming amount of those who engaged in little or no exercise were overweight and suffering with obesity despite the fact that the majority of participants agreed that exercise could maintain and prevent this.
