Cultural differences in PA behaviours of Iranian girls may account for differences in how specific aspects of healthrelated physical fitness were associated with actual motor competence and PA.
Occupational, transport and household domains are the most common physical activities in low-income and middleincome countries, whereas sports and leisure-time activities contribute more to total PA in high-income countries. For example, sports are not perceived as a suitable or desirable pursuit for girls and women in Iran, and they are encouraged to engage in caregiving and family responsibilities and are less likely than boys and men to participate in sports.

However, the fact that the mediation models predicted fairly substantial amounts of variance in self-reported PA still suggests the importance of developing locomotor skill competence, aerobic fitness and perceived competence to promote positive behaviours, as noted in the Stodden et al. The large sample and use of validated motor skill, perceived competence and health-related fitness assessments are strengths of this study.
However, there are three limitations that should be addressed. First, the self-report PA assessment in this study is a limitation and a more objective PA assessment would be preferred Kowalski et al.
Third, as the study design was cross-sectional, causal inferences regarding the relationships between actual motor competence, PA and aerobic fitness are speculative. However, the findings of the present study do support and extend previous research on the potential importance of integrating actual motor competence and cardiorespiratory fitness activities in children as it relates to PA Barnett et al.
In addition, promoting perceived motor competence by providing experiences that foster the development of actual motor competence in a variety of activities seem to be important to reverse the trend of decreasing PA across childhood Babic et al. Long-term behavioural promotion strategies that target motor skill acquisition, perceptions of competence and aerobic fitness for girls may promote the development of positive health trajectories across childhood Stodden et al.
Future research should examine the impact of developing actual motor competence, perceived motor competence and cardiorespiratory fitness on PA using experimental designs to determine the causal nature of these relationships across childhood, adolescence and their potential impact into adulthood.
Also, future research is needed to address relationships between types of skills and PA, cardiorespiratory fitness and perceived motor competence in other cultural surroundings.
