In addition, the accumulated experiences in Physical Education are decisive when adopting or not a healthy lifestyle. Repeatedly accumulated negative experiences are associated with feelings of incompetence and abandonment of the practice of PA (Beltrán-Carrillo et al., 2018). However, positive experiences in PE classes in childhood have been related to a greater intention to engage in physical activity, and to a reduction in sedentary behavior in adulthood (Ladwig, Vazou, & Ekkekakis, 2018). In this sense, PE teachers have a direct responsibility for the experiences generated in their classes.

Can the intervention carried out by Physical Education teachers be improved? How does the teaching interpersonal style influence the development of positive experiences in Physical Education classes?
How should interventions to improve healthy habits be developed from schools and from the area of Physical Education?
These and many other issues are what will focus the efforts of this Network in the coming years.
