Abstract: Borrowing Bourdieusian’s conceptualisation of social class and capital, this paper seeks to investigate the correlation between all four domains of physical activity with the various social class capitals. Literature review has revealed an overemphasis on leisure time physical activity (LTPA), with a lack of comprehensive studies that involve all four domains of physical activity. We surveyed 105 participants using our own modified version of the International Physical Activity Questionnaire Long-Form. Overall, findings on the associations between domains and capitals did not elucidate distinct associations between social capitals and domains of physical activity. Despite having only one significant result, our study serves as a starting point for future research to delve into the various domains of physical activity and its relationship with social class capitals, revealing important ways that can aid policymakers to improve health disparity between individuals of different social classes.
