Motivations et freins à la reprise d'une activité physique chez les patients obèses, dans le cadre du programme sport-santé marche nordique Alençon

Abstract : Introduction: Physical activity is scientifically recognized for its physical and psychological benefits. Faced with the increasing proportion of obesity, the promotion of physical activity is a major public health issue in which the general practitioner plays an essential role. it seemed interesting to propose a program of sport-healthy Nordic walking in Alençon. The objective of this work was to define what were the motivations and the obstacles to the resumption of physical activity for obese patients within the framework of this program. Material and Method: This is a qualitative study based on 10 individual interviews. The selection criteria were : patients who had agreed to participate in the Alençon Nordic Walking Sports Health Program, aged over 18, with a BMI over 30 and inactive. Results: The main motivations were the improvement of physical and psychological health and the search for social links, the programme itself was a source of motivation through its collective, supervised and outdoor activity aspect. The main obstacles were fear of pain, lack of time and lack of self-confidence. The Covid-19 health crisis has been a source of both obstacles and motivation. Discussion: The originality of this work is that, as far as we know, there is no work done on this subject before in this geographical area with its own particularities. The results are similar with those of the previous medical reference studies. Conclusion: This work will enable us to propose a programme that meets the expectations of the participants in order to facilitate their involvement.
