Barriers that Affect African-American Female College Students from Using the Campus Exercise and Wellness Facility
Keywords:African-American females, physical activity, campus recreation centers, barriers
One group that is affected by the lack of being physically active is the African-American Female (AAF) population. For this study 107 AAF were surveyed to find out the barriers to using the campus exercise and wellness facility. Briefly, it was found that the AAF students were not physically active because of prior experiences in physical activity settings, and that the students were not motivated to be physically active. Also those AAF females did not feel comfortable exercising in the presences of men. This knowledge can give those supervising campus exercise and wellness facilities knowledge of the barriers of keeping AAF from being physically active.
