The Impact of Physical Training on Academic Progress: A Perspective through Self-Determination Theory and Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs


The pursuit of overall well-being has become increasingly vital in our fast-paced and demanding world. Understanding the complex interplay between the mind and body is essential for realizing our full potential and living a healthy and satisfying life. Physical activity is one effective way to foster this relationship. Regular exercise has a plethora of benefits that extend beyond physical health, immediately benefiting our mental and emotional well-being. Students will feel competent in their performance if they have the freedom to engage in activities based on their sense of autonomy, competence, and relatedness. This article looks at the synergy effect of self-determination and Maslow’s theory in creating a link between physical activity and student academic achievement. Students can develop strong social connections with their peers and professors through effective discipline and incentive, leading to more engagement in learning and better study habits.

Keywords: Discipline, Motivation, Physical activity, Well-being, academic progress
