The data was analyzed with Statistical Package for the Social Sciences and the confidence level was 95%. According to the Kolmogrow Smirnov analysis, t and ANOVA tests were used as the participants’ cognitive behavioral physical activity scores had normal distribution (p>0.05) and Mann Whitney U and Kruskal Wallis tests were used as result expectation, self-regulation and personal obstacles subdimension scores did not have normal distribution (p<0.05).  According to the study results, there was no significant difference between the students enrolled at the Sports High School and the Anatolian High School.
