||The objective of this study was to quantify the energy expenditure of physical education instructors in their work environment, based on their physical condition determined by laboratory tests, but also according to different criteria including the educational tasks performed. Participating instructors were subjected to cardiofrequency monitoring and kept a diary of their work activity. It was found that the average energy expenditure of physical education instructors varies from low to moderate, but includes periods of very high intensity. This energy expenditure is not affected by gender, age or educational level. Finally, the physical condition of physical educators, particularly aerobic, is good to excellent.
