Abstract: Body image is the mental representation of body identity, which makes its study important to the individualization of educational, pedagogical, and physical activities in different groups of individuals, including military ones. This study aimed to review the literature about the body image of military men and check its relationship with physical activity in the context of the military. Studies in the databases Scopus, SportDiscus, Web of Science, PsycINFO and Scielo have been tracked using search engine words related to body image, the military and physical activity. From a total of 10865 articles found, only nine were about body image among members of the military. There is a lack of studies in this area, which makes future research about body image of members of military institutions necessary, in order to benefit this group.
