Background: Exercise as a source of positive change in different periods such as childhood, adolescence and puberty can improve the general condition of individuals and create a lifelong learning process. People participating in sports are at a good level in terms of health and well-being and have good mental and emotional conditions. Exercise also has positive social and psychological consequences among individuals.
While sports seem to provide numerous benefits to participants around the world, the level of sports participation is declining or stagnant. Various variables affect the path of improving sports participation. Meanwhile, Anderson et al. (2019) pointed out that psychological issues play an important role in attracting people to sports environments.
Another important issue for people to participate in sports is fashion. Fashionism is the interaction of individual values and messages that are often understood collectively. Fashionism can lead to a tendency to a certain behavior, or to the consumption of a particular commodity, or to adopt a particular style of life.
However, the lack of knowledge about the effects of psychological and fashion dimensions on the tendency to exercise in adolescents has led to the lack of serious and practical activities in this regard today, which has overshadowed the process of improving the tendency to exercise. On the other hand, the research gap in this field has caused that the desired capacities of psychological dimensions have not been used in order to improve the tendency of adolescent sports. Therefore, the researcher seeks to answer the question of whether the psychological and fashion dimensions have a significant effect on the tendency to exercise in adolescents?
Methods: The present research is a descriptive-survey and applied research that was conducted in the field. To conduct this research, 8881 people (4129 girls; 4752 boys) were selected from among the first high school students of Saqez city, based on Morgan table, 368 people were selected as a sample. Questions and components (psychological capital, cultural capital, mental health, self-efficacy and self-concept), Safari Sports Orientation Questionnaire (2004) with 30 questions and Kashkar et al. (2017) fashion questionnaire with 31 questions distributed among the sample and 343 A questionnaire was collected. Finally, in order to analyze the data of the present study, the structural equation method was used. The whole process of data analysis was performed in SPSS and AMOS software.
Results: The results showed that psychological and fashion dimensions have a significant effect on the tendency to exercise in adolescents. It was also found that all indicators of research model reporting are in good condition, which indicates the appropriateness of research model fit status.
Conclusion: In line with the findings of the present study, Humphreys et al. (2014) conducted a "study of physical activity outcomes in Canada" and found that regular exercise and regular exercise led to maximizing the potential of exercise in To improve health. This shows that the tendency to exercise as a concern should always be considered. Regular physical activity brings significant physical, mental and social health benefits to young people.
The results of the present study showed that by improving the situation of fashion, we can expect that the tendency to adolescent sports to increase quite clearly. Fashionism can lead people to socialize and participate in social activities if it is in accordance with the principles and values of society. Due to the attractiveness of sports environments, fashion can draw people to these environments. In other words, fashion is a reason for people to participate in sports. Among adolescents, the existence of fashion according to the values of society can lead them to participate in sports (17). This issue has led to the present study to determine that fashion has a significant role in improving the tendency to adolescent sports.
