Abstract:
To accomplish the study simple random sampling technique has been used. For this purpose, sixty female subjects were selected from the Panjab University Chandigarh. Thirty subjects were selected from the department of Physical education and thirty subjects were selected from the various departments. The selected subjects were ranged between the age group of 17 to 25 years. To find out the significance difference between physical education and non-physical education students with regard to Leisure time activity and Exercise Benefits/Barriers Scale, ‘t’ test was applied through Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) version 16.0. The level of significance was set at 0.05 level. The t-value was found to be statistically significant of leisure time activity as the value obtained was 12.501 whereas; the tabulated value was 2.00 in 58 degrees of freedom. The t-value was not found to be statistically significant of Exercise Benefits/Barriers Scale as the value obtained was 1.886 whereas; the tabulated value was 2.00 in 58 degrees of freedom. The reason may be that they have no weekly routine regarding leisure time and exercise, lack of interest, lack of time management, and lack of awareness of doing exercises as in line with the study of Caldwell, Smith and Weissinger (1992).
