Abstract : The utilitarian représentation of sport in Rumania, a brake in the development of leisure practice. Since the countries of central Europe entered the liberal sphere influence, the consumptions of possessions and services develop there. We observe a movement of tutellaire and ideological emancipation of the sports organizations, but the practice of popular physical activities delays developing. If, on the ground, we notice the appearance of an structured professionally offer, contrary to all expectations, it does not pull a real increase of consumption. This situation which rises in inferred paradox a cultural interrogation on the previous history of these brakes. Historically, the sport during the influence of communist sphere was enpreint of elitist and nationalist ideologies. An inquiry, made with the professionals of the forming in physical and sports education, moves closer to this weak development of the popular sports with the cultural inheritance of the country. The frame of sports of leisure in the representation that builds itself the professional actors, as the consumers, always revet a strongly utilitarian dimension which hinders its development. To develop the sports of leisure implies to integrate this peculiarity into the professionals of sports forming programme.
