Revista Romaneasca pentru Educatie Multidimensionala
The benefits of physical activities associated with physical fitness are positive at certain levels. The aim of this research is to determine students physical fitness level by using EUROFIT test battery and as a result, to design a physical activity program that they have to carry out in their daily activities. The research subjects are students (male) from the Faculty of Physical Education and Sport, Stefan cel Mare University of Suceava, in a number of 20 (height 179,90±8,44 cm; weight
... 44 cm; weight 79,58±12,04 kg). The research was conducted in sports facilities including: sports games hall, gym, swimming pool and outdoor artificial ground. The statistical significance of 0.05 threshold in ANOVA test was obtained in two cases and concerning the correlation, in 5 out of 10 cases it indicated a very strong correlation, while in 3 cases the value indicated a strong correlation and only in 2 tests there was recorded a moderate correlation. This good level of the physical fitness is the result of practicing exercises for at least 9 hours per week, but it is needed to focus on those physical fitness components with poor results at EUROFIT tests and also to maintain the body mass index below 25. These reference values will allow comparisons between students during physical activities and provide a baseline against which progress in physical fitness among Romanian youths and students could be compared.
