The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of the female students’ perceptions on their choice when deciding to take team sports, weight training or no physical education. This study is a non-equivalent groups design using two groups. The measure instrument used to collect the data were two different surveys. There were two significant results. First, students enrolled in weight training chose to do so because they are a high school athlete and they wanted to learn proper weight lifting technique or they want to just workout for free.
