According to the results of analyzing the relationship between life styles and interest in sports, the life styles of sports club members positively influenced self-positiveness, self-achievement and self-confirmation. Health management positively influenced interest. Self-positiveness, nihilism and preference for trends positively influenced sociality. Nihilism, self-achievement, sensitivity to information and self-positiveness positively influences health. Self-achievement, self-positiveness and health management positively influences recognition. Application/Improvement: Considering the limitations of this study, a follow up study is suggested for more development.
