Abstract: 

Introduction: Figure rating and body appreciation assessment in physically active and sedentary females could encourage exercise participation. The aim of this study was to determine the figure rating and body appreciation in sedentary and those women present in sport activities from Tabriz City.
Materials & Methods: This was a descriptive study conducted on 453 females from Tabriz at 2015. In total, 133 trainer and 321 sedentary females completed the exercise behavior questionnaire, “Muscle Dimorphic Disorder Inventory”, “Photographic Figure Rating Scale” (PFRS) and “Body Appreciation Scale”. The validity and reliability of the questionnaires were
a=0.84, a=0,82, a=0,83 and a=0,79 respectively. The data were analyzed using SPSS/21.
Findings: The figure rating was lower than the actual body size and the rate of body appreciation (3.45
±0.81) and was higher than the median values in the majority of the subjects (P<0.05). The majority of exercise participants were overweight (36.8%) and/or obese (50.4%) and their body mass index was higher than sedentary counterparts (P<0.05).
Conclusion: The majority of Tabriz women have slim perception about themselves. Encourage and participation of obese and overweight females more than other weight classes is suggested.
