As evidence continues to accumulate documenting the increase in obesity and the prevalence
of cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors among children, attention is being given to
understanding the complex behavior of youth physical activity (PA). The Youth Physical
Activity Promotion (YPAP) model provides a social-ecological framework that integrates social
and environmental influences on children’s PA. This study investigated the activity patterns of
primary school children enrolled in an exemplary school physical education program located in
a rural community in the central United States and used the YPAP model to examine the
influence of selected psycho-social variables on leisure-time PA behavior. Participants
included upper primary school children (grades 4-6) who wore electronic heart rate monitors
during physical education class throughout the academic year and completed a self-report
questionnaire regarding their leisure-time PA behaviors. Selected psycho-social constructs
were assessed through questionnaires. Results indicated that children who maintained their
heart rate within their target heart rate zone a greater proportion of the time during physical
education class exhibited higher levels of leisure-time PA. In addition, enjoyment was the
single best predictor of leisure-time PA. Implications of these results suggest that physical
education programs have a significant influence on the PA behaviors of children. (200 words,
