Adaptation and Validation of Behavioral Regulation in Exercise Questionnaire - 2 for Use with Brazilian Adolescents

Maick Viana, Alexandro Andrade

Abstract

The aim of this research is to adapt and validate the Portuguese version of the Behavioral Regulation in Exercise Questionnaire - 2 (BREQ - 2) for use with Brazilian adolescents. Was counted with the participation of 487 adolescent students (13-18 years) of both sexes, high school students from public schools in the Greater Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil. We conclude that the Brazilian version of the BREQ - 2 is clear and valid, but the use of different factor structure of the original version of the scale is recommended, as indicated by the results.
