Abstract

A study has been made on life habits in connection with health, concretely on the relation existing between the habits of the practice of physical activity in students of primary and obligatory secondary, in function of the physical-sporting practice on the part of their parents. The study has used surveys validated by two double pilot studies with the replies to a first and second survey readapted, through a group control of each one of the educational levels mentioned. The results of the study confirm a clear regression in physical practice passing from educational level to the other, showing statistically significant differences in favour of males. Similarly, the habit of practicing physical activity frequently by both mother and father of a young person favours a greater sporting participation on the part of the student.
