Physical Education - Intrinsic/extrinsic influences on fitness attitudes:
* A healthy work force is now seen as a priority for businesses as it
reduces the amount of time employees take off on sick leave.
* Many employers now provide facilities (eg. gymnasiums) at the workplace
that can be used before or after work, or even at lunch times. 'A healthy
work force is a more productive one.'
* Unfortunately, long working hours are a barrier to physical activity
participation. The introduction of flexi-time, rostered days off, working
from home etc. may be helping to give people more time for exercise.
