    Intrinsic/extrinsic influences on fitness attitudes - the media Media The media is a very powerful tool in influencing our attitudes toward fitness because it is so diverse. Campaigns, such as, QUIT, Jump rope for heart and Life - Be in it are all successful, largely due to the media. They have a direct impact on the community. The media now covers a wider range of sports that have benefited from the increased publicity and attention - eg. basketball. Unfortunately, there is an uneven coverage of male and female sports. We see sex role stereotyping and many female sports using 'sex' to appeal to spectators (eg. female basketball, hockey and beach volleyball uniforms which are now skin tight lycra). Unfortunately, the advertisements of products such as alcohol and smoking often use sport as a medium to advertise. This is now limited in terms of the medium they can advertise in.
