Résumé : Sports as vehicle of health and hygiene have played an important role in companies in the first half of the 20th century. However, the body representations that have accompanied their practice varied according to the sector of activity, the place occupied by each practitioner in the organizational hierarchy or the social, political or sportive circumstances. The development of physical activities within the athletic club of the Société générale and the Renault factory offer a stimulating perspective for a comparative study between "white collars" and "blue collars". From the archives kept by the two companies and their respective sports newspaper, Sport Banque and the Bulletin des usines Renault, we will examine how the body representations related to sports and recreation have evolved in the two sectors of activity.
