Symeon Dagkas and Thomas Quarmby

Drawing from Bourdieu, this study investigated the multifaceted influences that operate in and through combinations of family and social class with regard to the embodiment of physical activity in young adolescents in the UK. The findings suggest that pedagogical practices within the family environment are crucial to the development of embodied dispositions toward physical activity and health. The results illustrate that the family operates as a “pedagogical” field where personal histories and prevailing social circumstances exert a strong influence on children’s embodied physicalities.
