Abstract
The main goal of this research consisted on determining the present, ideal and social body perception and body unconformity differences and similarities between young people who frequently practice a sport with the ones who don’t. The total sample was 356 male high school students, with an average age of 15.29 years old (SD=1.42); 176 of them practice a sport and frequently participate in tournaments or competitions. The method adopted in the research was framed within a quantitative approach with a survey descriptive design. The results show that students who don’t practice frequently sports are the ones who chose heavier models for their present, ideal and social body figure, besides they show higher body unconformity. Future investigations should answer these findings in wide samples.
