BACKGROUND: The aim of this paper was to analyze the relationship between the effort subjective perception (PSE), affective replay (RA) and humor estate (EH) and its influence on adherence to different aerobic activities practice (choreographed gymnastics, hydrogymnastics and Step) in 10 people living with HIV/AIDS, submitted to the only acute training session of aerobic physical activity practice.
METHODS: This was a this descriptive study. All participants were submitted to experimental session and control session (without exercise). Was used as instruments the Effort Subjective Perception scale (PSE) of Borg CR10, the Valencia Affective Scale (VA) and the Humor Scale of Brunel (BRUMS).
RESULTS: The PSE analysis showed that the greatest perceived effort was during choreographed gymnastics and hydro gymnastics and the lowest during step. The identified affectivity revealed that all activities were perceived as enjoyable from start to finish. The step activity presented a closer relationship to the satisfaction of participants.
CONCLUSIONS: The psychological variables analyzed can be considered as factors that influence the adherence to the practice of physical activity by PLWHA’s.
