Sažetak
The importance of regular physical activity (PA) in improving and maintaining health has been recognized. Future professions of the female students from the selected faculties are oriented toward preservation of health and passing of such habits to children and adults. The aim of this research was to determine the level of PA of female students from the Faculty of Kinesiology (FK), Faculty of Medicine (FM) and Faculty of Teacher Education (FTE), and the differences in PA between the groups. The sample consisted of 255 female students, 78 FK, 84 FTE and 93 FM students. Habitual PA was determined by the Baecke questionnaire. Central and dispersion parameters were calculated as well as the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test. Statistically significant differences in habitual PA between female students from FK, FM and FTE were established through the univariate analysis of variance (ANOVA). FK students conduct everyday physical activities while FTE and FM students tend to lead a more sedentary lifestyle. The study indicates the students' need for a more frequently organized PA that would influence their understanding of the importance of PA. It will affect the relation of future physicians, teachers and professors towards children and adults in the sense of more frequent recommendations and implementations of PA.
