Cross-sectional study conducted in the State with 511 professional (59.1% women). Time since formal education was achieved, type of employment, curricular experiences in initial education, participation in events, lectures and courses focusing in physical education, as well as the social and demographic characteristics were collected through a built and previously validated questionnaire. Descriptive and inferential analysis were conducted, and chi-square test considered a p value of <0.05.
