Sažetak
Physical inactivity is known to be a health threatening factor in modern society. The aim was to establish whether there were differences between physical activity (PA) levels of adolescent girls and boys. The sample of 202 students at the Zagreb Secondary School of Graphic Arts, attending the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th classes, was explored using the International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ). Statistically significant differences were obtained in all the investigated variables in the levels of involvement in PA in favour of male adolescents. The greatest differrence, however, was obtained by means of independent sample t-test in the variable INTPA TOTAL, describing an entire week intensity of PA. Despite the obtained differences, the research revealed also that the young of both sexes spent almost nine hours per day being physically passive, that is, sitting or lying. The alarming situation indicatesit is high time for expert and society intervention. Also, a strategy should be developed that should include adequate kinesiological (sport and physical exercise) programmes.
