The purpose of this project was to examine whether high levels of physical activity were predictors of high self-esteem, levels of health value and high levels of body esteem. One hundred and nine participants, from a sample of convenience, comprising part time and full time students of Dublin Business School, and using a self-reported questionnaire were surveyed. The results supported the hypoFinal Year Project that there would be a significant positive correlation between high levels of physical activity and health value. Male and female scores were investigated for each variable within this study with health value being the only variable on which females scored higher than their male counterparts.
