Students ‘Habits and Attitudes Towards the Contents of Sports Recreation
Insufficient physical activity is the fourth leading risk factor for mortality. According to the World Health Organization (WHO, 2012), people who are insufficiently physically active have a 20% to 30% increased risk of all-cause mortality compared to those who engage in at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity each day. Previous research has confirmed that regular physical activity and well-organized leisure time improves human health and affects the prevention of a number of diseases. The purpose of this paper was to show the habits and attitudes towards the contents of sports recreation through a survey conducted on a sample of students from the University “Džemal Bijedić” in Mostar. 331 students participated in the survey. Of the total number of respondents, 81% are active as athletes and recreational athletes. It is important to emphasize that out of the total number of respondents, 27.8% decide for activities in gyms and exercises on devices.
