          Abstract

          Objective To analyze the current situation and associated factors of fitness APP usage among college students.

          Methods By using three-stage compound sampling method, 2 171 college students were selected, and a binary Logistic regression model was established to analyze the influencing factors fitness APP usage.

          Results The rate of fitness APP usage among college students was 61.9%, with significant differences by grade, physical health perception, fitness awareness, fitness purpose and exercise frequency (χ 2 = 28.01, 37.15, 214.12, 32.23, 316.21, P<0.01). The Logistic regression analysis showed that, grade ( β = −0.31), fitness awareness ( β = 0.46), fitness purpose (improving health, β = 0.52, weight loss, β = 0.65), APP user-friendliness ( β = 0.34) and specific type of sports (running, β =1.24, racket movement, β = 0.80) were associated with fitness APP usage ( P<0.05). Gender ( β = 0.30), major ( β = 0.01) and exercise frequency ( β = −0.29) have less effect on fitness APP usage among college students ( P>0.05).

          Conclusion College students have a high level of acceptance and usage of fitness APP. Grade, fitness awareness and purpose, sports type and fitness APP design are prominent factors affecting fitness APP usage among college students. The personalized custom design of fitness APP could be improved for college students.

          Abstract

          【摘要】 目的 开展大学生使用健身APP现状及其相关因素分析, 为推进全民科学健身提供理论依据。 方法 通过三阶 段复合抽样方法选取中国 2 171 名大学生作为调査对象, 建立二元 Logistic 回归模型分析大学生使用健身软件的相关因 素。 结果 大学生健身APP使用报告率为 61.9%, 不同年级、身体健康认知、健身观念、健身目的和运动频率学生间差异 均有统计学意义 (χ 2 值分别为 28.01, 37.15, 214.12, 31.23, 316.21, P 值均<0.01)。Logistic 回归分析结果显示, 大学生所属 年级 ( β = −0.31)、健身观念 ( β = 0.46)、健身目的(提升健康: β = 0.52, 减肥塑形: β = 0.65)、软件友善度 ( β =0.34) 和部分运动 项目 (跑步类: β =1.24, 持械练习: β = 0.80) 是健身 APP 使用的主要相关因素 ( P 值均<0.05); 性别 ( β = 0.30)、专业 ( β = 0.01)、运动频率 ( β = −0.29) 等因素与大学生健身APP的使用无相关关系 ( P 值均>0.05)。 结论 大学生对于健身APP使 用程度髙, 年级、健身观念、健身目的、运动项目和软件设计是大学生软件使用的相关因素。健身 APP 需改进训练模块的 个性化需求设计, 以提升大学生用户的满意度和获得感。
