The article presents the material of the results of studying the components of body weight composition of female students of higher educational establishments using computer measuring technology of bioimpedance. Special features of the are the basic parts of forming the indicators of general and special performance in sports and fitness. Along with this, the body changes under the influence of the specifics of training loads and under the influence of increasing physical and functional fitness

Therefore, the information about the components of body weight composition allows to individualize physical activity on training sessions using a variety of physical exercises and kinds of sports. Female students with higher of bioelectrical indicators (phase angle, reactance), the active cell mass (ACM) and the percentage of the active cell mass dominate in the physical and functional fitness relatively students with low indexes. These differences are statistically significant (P <0.05). Their response of the cardiovascular system is also significantly lower (P <0.05) during the running load in the aerobic mode power supply. Pedagogical technology of the construction of training process on the basis of monitoring the components of body weight composition with the provision of this information to the students contributes to the high interest in their training sessions of active exercises and of certain kinds of sports. It contributes to the positive dynamics of physical fitness and body correction of the practicing female students.
