dc.description.abstractWithin the general population, physical activity levels are often below the recommended level, especially in females and older adults. Reasons for not engaging in physical activity include cost and physical mobility. In addition, certain populations may experience specific barriers, such as transphobia in trans people. Currently, only one study has explored physical activity in trans individuals and found levels to be significantly lower in comparison to cisgender people. However, the participants self-identified as trans, the samples were small, and cisgender and trans participants were not matched on any variable of importance. The current study aimed to explore the differences between trans and cisgender people, matched by age and gender (natal gender in the cisgender population and experienced gender in the trans population), in relation to the amount and type of physical activity they engage in.en
