Abstract

The current study describes motivations for physical activity and relationships between recreational facilities and physical activity among a nationally representative sample of New Zealand youth. Our findings suggest that physical activity interventions should address both the social (opportunities for social engagement) and physical (access to recreational facilities) environments of adolescents.
