This study examined the psychometric properties of the Spanish version of the Body-related Self-Conscious Emotions Fitness Instrument (BSE-FIT). A cross-sectional and descriptive design with three samples of endurance exercisers and undergraduates (Ntotal = 955, Mage = 25.28, SDage = 8.92) was used. Results from both exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses revealed that item 16 failed as a clear indicator of hubristic pride. Once it was removed, adequate fit-indexes for the originally proposed four-factor structure as well as evidence of reliability, convergent validity and invariance across sex for the BSE-FIT scores were found. Females scored (a) higher than males on fitness-related shame/guilt, and (b) lower than males on fitness-related authentic and hubristic pride. These findings provide validity and reliability evidence for the scores derived from a four-factor 15-item version of the BSE-FIT in individuals of both sexes from Spain.
