Abstract

In this research authors evaluate general physical fitness level of 606 Slovak universities students (344 boys and 262 girls). Physical fitness was evaluated with reduced Eurofit battery tests. We have available students from the Faculty of physical education and sports and from 8 different faculties. We compared these measured parameters with former Slovak population norms.  With questionnaire we learned used forms of student physical activities. Differences were evaluated with parametric un-pair t-test; we used *p<0.05, **p<0.01 significance levels.  In the contribution is shown that students of the FSPORT reached higher level of general motor performance with regard to other faculties or former populations. It seems that compulsory physical and sport education subjects on universities do not influence significantly positively physical fitness level; the same is watched with unpaid physical activities forms. Decisive role in general motor performance level increase have forms of practising physical activities in individual leisure time.
