Sažetak

The aim of the study was to determine whether there is a diffrence in social physique anxiety (SPA) in relation to
gender, gravity of exercise, main goal of exercise and their interaction. A sample of 345 male and female gym exercisers
completed social phisique anxiety inventory (SPAS) and anwsered questions about their exercise habits. Data was collected
through online survey formed on Survey Monkey which was forwarded to participants through social networks and
forums related to exercise. The results of this study indicate that higher level of both SPAS dimensions (Dissatisfaction
with appearance and Worry about appearance) was reported by recreational athletes (compared to more serious recreational
athletes and competitive athletes) and participants whose main goal of exercise is improving health (compared to
participants whose main goal of exercise is developing muscle mass or increasing endurance and strenght), while in
Worry about appearance dimension, females show higher scores.
