Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to determine if the presence of social support and music affected exercise performance and enjoyment among school-aged children. Fifteen children ages 6-13 years participated in the study. Enjoyment and performance were measured while the children performed four different exercises including wall sits, planks, squats, and bunny hops. During each exercise, four different genres of music were played in the lab (classical, classic rock, folk/zydeco, and kidz bop). The effects of these two factors were examined on heart rate, time spent performing each exercise, and responses to an enjoyment scale completed after each session. The results indicated that the presence of social support and upbeat music promoted better exercise enjoyment and performance.
