Abstract Those in receipt of coaching had “stickier” sport & physical activity habits; have increased their activity levels since the previous year; would like to do more sport or physical activity in the future.UK Coaching commissioned YouGov to survey 20,000 adults and 1,000 children in 2017. The primary aim of the survey was to explore the participant experience of receiving coaching and the experience of being a coach.
