Campus Sports Culture Affecting the Physical Exercise Behavior of Tertiary Students in a University in Guangdong China

Xiang Jun

Abstract: Unhealthy habits like prolonged sitting and late - night activities contribute to reduced physical exercise among college students, directly impacting their overall fitness. College sports culture, with its educational role, fosters sports awareness and enhances the quality of school sports teaching. Purpose: it will be an important attempt to improve the health of Zhaoqing University students by discussing the relationship between college sports culture and college students' physical exercise. Methodology: The Campus Sports Culture Scale and the Physical Activity Behavior Scale were used to survey 1, 081 Chinese college students to analyze the basic situation of Chinese college students, their evaluations of campus sports culture and physical activity behavior, and the differences between them. Results: A predominant demographic of 19 - year - old female freshmen among college respondents. A significant sports culture exists on campus, while the assessment of sports coaching is consistent across sexes and ages, with variations by year level. Sophomore and senior students generally rate coaching higher than freshmen and juniors. Despite a prevalent sports culture, the degree of physical exercise behavior is less extensive. Surprisingly, the assessment of exercise behavior intensity remains consistent across demographics. Interestingly, an increased sports culture on campus does not necessarily correlate with a corresponding rise in the degree of physical exercise behavior among college students, emphasizing the complex relationship between sports culture and individual exercise habits in the college setting. In view of the above findings, recommendations are made accordingly.
