Article excerpt

Introduction

It is generally agreed today and the specialists say that regular physical activity has a positive effect on the level of physical and mental health of the schoolchildren and students and it allows to the young people to improve their academic achievement (Donnelly, Hillman, et al., 2016; Shook, 2016). The studies show that students with a high level of physical activity demonstrate higher academic achievement than their fellow students who do not exercise regularly (Pellicer-Chenoll, Garcia-Masso, Morales, et al., 2015). Unfortunately, the recent scientific studies show that most of today's young people (60-75%) do not meet the health requirements in terms of the required level of the daily physical activity (Armstrong, 2012). This is primarily due to a lack of knowledge and an underestimation of the role of physical activity in preserving the health of the modern students (Keating, et al., 2009). The article deals with the results of the student surveys which indicate that the level of their daily physical activity and the level of theoretical knowledge about maintaining health are low (Sultoni, et al., 2017). However, the scientists note that the level of the theoretical and practical preparedness of many teachers in matters related to the inclusion of fitness components in the program of physical education with the students is insufficient (Eastham, 2009). The lack of daily physical activity of the modern youth is a rather negative fact as physical activity is one of the main means of preventing obesity (Salimin, Elumalai, Shahril, et al., 2015). Moreover, the physicians note a significant increase in the number of the young people who have indicators of the excessive body mass index or obese (Gaetano, 2016; Peshkov, & Sharaykina, 2014). All conditions should be created for the modern young people to spend most of their free time in active movement rather than in front of their computer screens to successfully combat these diseases (Kudryavtsev, Kramida, & Osipov, 2016). However, the level of motivation of the modern students for active and regular exercise is rather low (Osipov, Vonog, Prokhorova, et al., 2016). The dissatisfaction of the majority of the students with the standard programs of physical education of young people in schools is revealed. Therefore, the experts believe that the quality physical education programs for the trainees should contribute to the formation of young people's need for active movement (Bott, & Mitchell, 2015). The need to introduce changes in the standards of higher education that are associated with the increase in the overall level of the culture of health of the students and university professors and the increase in the level of motor activity of the participants in the educational process is underlined by the various scientists (Osipov, Kudryavtsev, Fedorova, et al., 2017, Iermakov, Cieślicka, & Muszkieta, 2015).

We can say about the need to develop new and high-quality physical education programs faster for the young people that allow them to maintain the optimal level of the motor activity and contribute to increasing the motivation of the modern youth for the regular exercise as the specialists pay attention to it (Ennist, 2017, Osipov, Starova, Malakhova, et al., 2016; Mayorga-Vega, et al., 2016). Besides, the Russian specialists note that today in the most Russian universities there is a need to form a stable need for the physical activity among the female students (Trukhachev, Osychenko, & Skripkin, 2015). Furthermore, C. Ennist believes that the use of sports and dance movements will contribute significantly to improving the quality of the physical education programs (Ennist, 2017). The experts note that the youth-friendly types of fitness will help to avoid the development of cardiovascular diseases, mental disorders, obesity and disorders of musculoskeletal functions of the young people regardless of their sex (Liusnea, 2016, Ghorbani, et al. …
