BALLESTEROS, Matías Salvador  y  FREIDIN, Betina. Desigualdades sociales en la realización de distintas modalidades de actividad física en Argentina. Educ. fís. cienc. [online]. 2019, vol.21, n.1, pp.1-2. ISSN 2314-2561.

Physical activity is encouraged by health experts to prevent chronic non-communicable diseases and risk factors. Physical activity and sports are also beneficial for psycho-emotional well-being. The social sciences and critical social epidemiology point to the social determinants of physical activity and sport, derived from social class, gender and age. In this article we analyze the intensities of global physical activity performed by different social groups, as well as the differences between activities related to work (at home and in the labor market) and commuting, and sports and exercise which are performed to improve or maintain physical fitness. Regarding recreational physical activities, we also describe the place where they are done. Data come from the National Survey of Risk Factors conducted in 2009 with an urban population aged 18 years and over. This survey, unlike those carried out in 2005 and 2013, discriminated between physical activities related to work and commuting and those associated with improving a physical condition and/or playing sports. We emphasize the importance of this differentiation to account for patterns of physical activity performed by different social groups.
