The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between viewing fitspirational content and women's body image, exercise attitudes, and eating attitudes. It was hypothesized that viewing fitspirational content would lead to a reduction in body image and an increase in eating disorder-related thoughts and guilt or sadness related to exercising. One significant interaction was found, which implied that individuals who had viewed the fitspirational content had more guilt and depressive feelings related to exercise than individuals in the control group when comparing to the pre-test. None of the remaining hypotheses were supported.
