Concerned Thus, the aim of this study was to test the predictive power driver style and the satisfaction of basic psychological needs of intrinsic motivation. The sample consisted of 325 women practicing regular physical exercise athletes, aged 18 to 72 years (M = 32.4, SD = 11.40). The results indicate that the driver of the teaching style negatively predicted intrinsic motivation while we predict positive psychological mediators.
