Abstract

The aim of this pilot study was to investigate the relationships between health promoting activities and physical activity of secondary school teachers. Forty secondary school teachers took part in the study by completing a questionnaire on health promotion (HPQ) and physical activity (IPAQ). A multiple regression analysis was performed to examine whether health promotion activities predict the level of physical activity of teachers. The results showed that a comprehensively designed, properly implemented and evaluated health promotion action plan sufficiently motivates employees to ensure their good psycho-physical well-being through regular physical activity. The implementation of a health promotion plan can be a long-term investment in the health of employees.
