Motivation in physical education learning is essential for achieving educational goals. In achieving this, there is also a barrier that can hinder achieving an educational goal. There have been many studies about this in public schools. However, boarding schools still need to be done considering the different characteristics of students between public school students and boarding schools.

As for student barriers, the highest percentage result is external barriers at 56%, and the lowest percentage is internal barriers at 44%. In conclusion, of the five motivation categories that have been researched, intrinsic motivation obtained the most dominant results compared to other motivation categories.
