For examples of action, photographs, Asian, and young women were the most preferred information to conduct exercise. We examined physical literacy related factors using multiple regression model. The final regression model was shown that age(β=-0.269, p<0.000), educational level(high: β=0.220, p<0.001; college or higher: β=0.159, p=0.009), understanding of terms(β=0.118, p<0.042), interest of excercise information(β=0.191, p<0.013) was significantly associated with physical literacy in the elderly.
