Specific health outcomes include improvement of overall health, including mood improvement and physical health have previously been paired with higher exercise habits, and this study aimed to show that this is carried onto the teacher population. The study showed that various factors are strongly associated with positive outcomes in teachers including age, stress, quality of life, and BMI. Teachers who report being younger and lower BMI's, less stressed, having higher levels of quality of life reported higher exercise habits.
