MELO, Cristina Carvalho de et al. Motivational aspects related to the practice of the pilates method. Mudanças [online]. 2021, vol.29, n.1, pp. 33-40. ISSN 0104-3269.

This study aims to identify the motivational aspects that lead individuals to practice the Pilates Method. The IMPRAFE-54 questionnaire was applied to 52 adult and elderly individuals. Variables such as sex, age group and time of practice were considered. For group comparisons, the T test and the Mann-Whitney test were performed. The results showed that, in general, the sample is motivated by the health factor followed by pleasure. The health variable showed a significant difference between the elderly and adults. Adult women are more motivated by the aesthetic domain when compared to the elderly. Adult men are more motivated by the health domain when compared to the elderly. Understanding the motivational aspects related to the practice of the Pilates Method can contribute to a better intervention directly associated with the satisfaction of practitioners.
