The sample consisted of 293 participants (148 men, 145 women) aged 18–70 years who performed diverse types of physical exercise. Three alternative models were tested. The data were better represented by a model in which physical self-concept mediates the relationships between intrinsic motivation and satisfaction with life. Specifically, the direct effects of intrinsic motivation on physical self-concept, and of physical self-concept on satisfaction with life were significant, with the amount of explained variance increasing over time. In conclusion, people who perform physical exercise regularly, and who have fun over time will tend to have a better physical self-perception and, consequently, more psychological well-being.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/42815||ISSN:||0264-0414||DOI:||10.1080/02640414.2011.649776||Source:||Journal of Sports Sciences[ISSN 0264-0414],v. 30, p. 337-347|
