The physical activity of primary school students of the city of Krasnoyarsk



Physical activity is a factor of healthy lifestyle development. This article focuses on the physical activity of primary school students of the city of Krasnoyarsk. The authors discuss various reasons for leading an active (sports classes, yard games) or a passive (resting at the computer or a game console, watching TV) lifestyle among Krasnoyarsk primary school students in view of social family background and the parents' example of sports activities. The lifestyle criteria presented can be helpful in preventing many diseases associated with physical inactivity and improve the processes of physical training of primary school students.
