    The Influence of Small-Scale Sporting Events on Participants’ Intentions to Recommend the Host City
    (MDPI, 2022-06-21) Cabello-Manrique, David; Roca-Cruz, Antonio Francisco; Fernández Martínez, Antonio; Nuviala Nuviala, Alberto
    Tourism, including sports tourism, is an important driver of social and economic development. Sports tourism events, and small-scale sporting events in particular, are a powerful resource for promoting tourism in the host city, as a viable way of developing sustainable tourism in the local community. This study aims to analyse the impact of functional quality, outcome quality, satisfaction, and perceived value on intentions to recommend the host city among participants in a small-scale sporting event. A total of 866 runners in a 21-km recreational race participated in this study. A multi-item scale was used and a confirmatory factor analysis of the model was carried out, and the presence of gender differences in the relationships was ascertained using a multigroup analysis. The results revealed a direct effect of functional quality and satisfaction, and an indirect effect of outcome quality and value on intentions to recommend the city. Intention to recommend the city and functional quality showed differences between males and females. In conclusion, managing quality is a key strategy in encouraging participants in small-scale sporting events to recommend the host city.

    Autoconcepto físico e intencionalidad para ser físicamente activo en los participantes del programa Escuelas Deportivas
    (D.A.A. Scientific Section, 2017-01-01) Grao-Cruces, Alberto; Fernández Martínez, Antonio; Nuviala Nuviala, Alberto; Teva Villén, María Rosario
    El objetivo del estudio fue conocer las diferencias en el autoconcepto físico y la intencionalidad para ser físicamente activo entre los participantes y no participantes en el programa de la Junta de Andalucía, así como analizar los cambios producidos sobre estas variables durante el curso escolar. Completaron el estudio 1736 estudiantes de Educación Secundaria (12-16 años; 354 participaron en el programa, 1382 no) en Andalucía. Se utilizaron las escalas Cuestionario de Autoconcepto Físico (PSQ) y Medida de la Intencionalidad para ser Físicamente Activo (MIFA). Se realizó una medición pre-post. Los participantes en el programa Escuelas Deportivas mostraron un autoconcepto físico más positivo y mayor intencionalidad para ser activos (p = .001 en hombres; p < .001 para las mujeres) antes del inicio de éste que sus pares que no asistieron al mismo. Las percepciones de la condición física de las mujeres mejoraron significativamente al terminar el programa (p = .010). En conclusión, los participantes en el programa se caracterizaron por valorar positivamente su autoconcepto físico y su alta intencionalidad para ser físicamente activos. Tras la aplicación del programa, se observa una mejora de la Condición física percibida en las mujeres que lo frecuentaron.

    Implementing Service-Learning Programs in Physical Education; Teacher Education as Teaching and Learning Models for All the Agents Involved: A Systematic Review
    (MDPI, 2021-01-14) Pérez-Ordás, Raquel; Grao-Cruces, Alberto; Fernández Martínez, Antonio; Nuviala Nuviala, Alberto
    Service-learning (SL) is the subject of a growing number of studies and is becoming increasingly popular in physical education teacher education (PETE) programs. The objective of this study was to conduct a systematic review of the implementation of SL programs with PETE students. The databases used were Web of Science, SPORTDiscus (EBSCO), and SCOPUS. Articles were selected on the basis of the following criteria: (a) published in a peer-reviewed journal; (b) covers the use of SL programs with PETE students; (c) relates to physical education or physical activity programs; (d) availability of a full-text version in English and/or Spanish. Thirty-two articles met the inclusion criteria. Two types of findings were observed: firstly, findings relating to the study characteristics and objectives and, secondly, recommendations for improvement of this type of intervention. The objectives of the different studies focused on (a) the impact of the SL methodology on PETE students’ professional, social, and personal skills; (b) its impact on the community; (c) analysis of the effectiveness and quality of the programs. All but two studies analyzed the impact of SL on PETE, while only four analyzed community participants and only three analyzed the quality of the SL program. Recommendations for improving SL programs used with PETE students included: all stakeholders, e.g., students and community participants, should be studied and coordinated; the quality of the programs should be assessed, as studying the effectiveness of SL programs could help to attain the objectives of both students and the community; mixed methods should be used; and intervention implementation periods should be extended to provide more objective, controlled measurements.

    Exercise Addiction and Satisfaction of Fitness Center Users as Precursors to the Intention of Continuing to Engage in Physical Activity
    (MDPI, 2020-12-25) Murillo-Lorente, Víctor; Sarmiento, Alberto; Álvarez-Medina, Javier; Nuviala Nuviala, Alberto; Fernández Martínez, Antonio
    Exercise addiction occurs when a person engages in excessive physical activity until they lose control. Among individuals attending fitness centers, the risk of developing exercise addiction has been estimated to be close to 10%. The objective of this study was to determine whether exercise addiction may be an antecedent of satisfaction with the service received and/or of the intention of continuing to partake in leisure-time physical activity at fitness centers in a direct or indirect manner. A total of 361 individuals (29.05 ± 11.40 years old) who were physically active at Spanish fitness centers were asked to respond to a questionnaire on exercise addiction, satisfaction with the sports service, and their intention to continue to engage in physical activity. A multi-group analysis was conducted to check for differences in relationships by sex. The results show the relationships between addiction, satisfaction, and intention to continue physical activity. The standardized values display differences between men and women, with women exhibiting the highest values for the relationships between addiction and the rest of the constructs. Satisfaction with the sports service is a mediator in the relationship between exercise addiction and intention to engage in leisure-time physical activity.

    Psychological Wellbeing in Physical Education and School Sports: A Systematic Review
    (MDPI, 2021-01-20) Piñeiro-Cossio, Javier; Pérez-Ordás, Raquel; Nuviala Nuviala, Alberto; Fernández Martínez, Antonio
    Mental health in children and adolescents has become an increasingly important topic in recent years. It is against this backdrop that physical education and school sports play an important role in promoting psychological wellbeing. The aim of this review was to analyse interventions for improving psychological wellbeing in this area. To this end, a literature review was conducted using four databases (WOS, SPORTDiscus, SCOPUS and ERIC) and the following keywords: psychological wellbeing, physical education, and school sports. Twenty-one articles met the inclusion criteria. The results showed that interventions varied greatly in terms of duration and used a wide range of strategies (conventional and non-conventional sports, physical activity, games, etc.) for promoting psychological wellbeing, primarily among secondary school students. There was a lack of consensus as to the conceptualisation of the construct of psychological wellbeing, resulting in a variety of tools and methods for assessing it. Some studies also suggested a link between psychological wellbeing and other variables, such as basic psychological needs and self-determination. Finally, this study provides a definition of psychological wellbeing through physical activity based on our findings.

    Women and Physical Activity in Fitness Centres. Analysis of Future Intentions and Their Relationship with Age
    (MDPI, 2020-07-22) Nuviala, Román; Pérez-Ordás, Raquel; Fernández Martínez, Antonio; Nuviala Nuviala, Alberto; Haro González, Mónica
    Physical activity is an important tool for promoting women’s health. Increasing adherence to physical activity is a challenge for governments and private entities. One of the main objectives of the fitness sector is to build customer loyalty. Their behavioural intentions according to gender and age may be a determining factor. The aim of this study was to establish a model that relates the fitness centre’s quality as perceived by female customers, these customers’ future intentions, satisfaction, and age. A total of 745 women participated in this study, with a mean age of 32.97 ± 14.11, divided into three age groups. A confirmatory analysis, a factor invariance analysis, and a multi-group analysis were conducted to verify the validity and reliability of the model. The results revealed that quality is an antecedent of both perceived value and satisfaction in the three age groups. Perceived value is a precursor of satisfaction, except in the group of women over 45 years old. The only antecedent to adaptation to price is quality, except in the older age group. Finally, perceived value was found to be related to adaptation to price. These results will facilitate the development of strategies to promote physical activity among women according to their age.

    Customer Loyalty in Recreational Long-Distance Races: Differences Between Novice and Experienced Runners
    (Frontiers, 2021-09-22) Cabello-Manrique, David; Roca Cruz, Antonio Francisco; García-García, Borja; Nuviala Nuviala, Alberto; Fernández Martínez, Antonio
    A growing number of recreational races are being held in different locations, drawing many local and visiting runners. This study examined the relationships between quality, value, satisfaction, and loyalty among runners in a recreational race and examines potential differences in relationships between these constructs based on the runners’ experience. The participants were 985 runners with a mean age of 40.74±9.41years. Validated, reliable ad hoc instruments were used. A multi-group analysis was performed to ascertain the existence of relationships between the constructs and differences in the relationships between the different study groups. The results show that quality is a direct antecedent of value and satisfaction. Value is directly related to satisfaction and indirectly related to loyalty. Satisfaction is related to the loyalty of participants in the race. Differences in the relationship between satisfaction and loyalty were dependent upon the runners’ experience. Loyalty to a race depends primarily on satisfaction and is modified by the runners’ experience.

    Intención de volver a participar en un evento deportivo en el medio natural: prácticas verdes y calidad de resultado como antecedentes
    (FEADEF, 2024-02-02) Chaves-Castro, Karla; Morán-Gómez, Guillermo; Nuviala Nuviala, Román; Fernández Martínez, Antonio
    En los últimos años los eventos deportivos llevados a cabo en la naturaleza han aumentado, provocando un gran impacto en los lugares donde se realizan. Las organizaciones deportivas tienen el reto de ofrecer eventos deportivos de calidad que satisfagan las necesidades de los participantes y que sean amigables con el ambiente. Objetivo: explorar la relación entre las prácticas verdes, la calidad (general y del resultado), la satisfacción y la intención de volver a participar en eventos deportivos realizados en el medio natural en Costa Rica. Método: 781 participantes (66.3% hombres y 33.7% mujeres) con una edad promedio de 40.9 ± 11.9 años. El instrumento utilizado fue un cuestionario conformado por 24 ítems provenientes de distintas escalas. Para el análisis de los datos, se aplicaron técnicas estadísticas, incluyendo el cálculo de estadísticas descriptivas, el índice Alpha de Cronbach, la varianza promedio extraída, la fiabilidad compuesta y modelos de ecuaciones estructurales. Resultados: se destaca las prácticas verdes como antecedente de la calidad general y que la calidad general antecede la satisfacción, mientras que la calidad del resultado antecede la satisfacción y las intenciones de volver a participar, además, se encontró que la satisfacción también es un antecedente de las intenciones de volver a participar en el evento. Conclusiones: la implementación de prácticas verdes es un elemento indispensable a considerar en la gestión de eventos deportivos, ya que no solo ayudan a minimizar el impacto medio ambiental, sino que también pueden mejorar la calidad del evento y la intención de volver a participar de los participantes.
