Gym users, extended exercise effects on motivation and body satisfaction

Hello all! My name is Jack and I am currently studying Psychology at University. Within my degree, I have chosen to research gym users’ self-perception. This survey has been said to take less than 5 minutes for the previous version! Your time would be greatly appreciated much more than you can imagine! After messages regarding suggestions etc this is an updated version (had already posted this survey but this one is more specific for participants) For my Psychology dissertation, I have decided to research the effects of extended gym use on self-perceived body image, satisfaction, and motivation. I believe that there is a period of time where motivation becomes lower and gym users will notice slower progression resulting in lower self-perceived body satisfaction. This may be involving levels of dopamine not reaching the same levels they used to reach after a gym session. I also believe that these levels of dopamine may in fact cause lower levels of current motivation for participants who have attended gyms for longer than newcomers… The questionnaire provided will be completely anonymous – the only personal data collected would be an age range and a range of time that you have attended a gym. – I have had to use a standardised consent form advised by my university as well as one part of consent that confirms the understanding of self-reflection as the answers. I am recruiting participants who are interested in this topic who have had any gym experience in their lifetime, past or present who are at least 18 years old. Due to the nature of the questionnaire, it is advised not to take part in this study if you have any known body image, or related, disorders. The questionnaire itself will take up to 10 minutes. Please do not hesitate to contact me regarding more information if necessary otherwise please use the provided link to continue with the study. Thank you for your time, it is so appreciated 🙂 Link to survey: https://aber.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/the-effects-of-gym-use-on-self-perceived-body-image-2
