Abstract

Due to the increase in the workload and the observable increase in the competition amongst the youth, the health and fitness of oneself are put as a secondary priority amongst them. This research was conducted to test this very reason and to check its validity. As not many studies are carried out on targeting this specific set of the population on this subject, this research was carried out to understand the physical activity patterns among university students and their perception towards the same. Descriptive research was carried out where a cross-sectional data on physical activity levels were collected (Self-reported data). The attitudes, motivations, demotivation, food consumption patterns, and the perception of them regarding their health and fitness were collected from the respondents. A sample of 122 was used where there were 63 women and 59 men. This study gathered quantitative data through structured questionnaires to understand each of the objectives. Descriptive statistics were used to analyze data where the mean, median, mode, and standard deviation was calculated and a number of correlations were made using the same. It was found that respondents aging from 15-26 have low levels of physical activity. Moreover, when a comparison was made between males and females on their levels of physical activity, women were found to do easier levels of physical activity. The BMI was likewise determined, so as to discover the class of weights that individual’s fall into. While the vast majority expressed that practicing was imperative to them, they, despite everything neglected to work out for adequate hours per week. While individuals know and have the correct disposition towards working out, they have recently been unsuccessful when it came to really work out. At the point when it went to the reasons why individuals work out, the most well-known ones were to get fitter or more grounded or accomplish a positive inclination. Be that as it may, when it went to the demotivation of working out the most widely recognized reasons were the lack of time, energy, and inspiration to work out. Some different elements that were a consequence of individuals being overweight were their temptations/cravings to eat fast food. A greater part of the respondents said that they expended cheap food in any event 2-3 times per day. 15-26 years old have busy lifestyles and hence are much harder to reach. A targeted intervention could be carried out in order to educate people about the importance of the physical activity.
