ABSTRACT Study aim. The purpose of the work is an assessment of a weekly, habitual physical activity of girls and boys aged 16-18. Research questions were formulated as follows:
1. To what extent the level of intensity of physical activity is varied between genders?
2. What percentage of surveyed students met the criteria for high, sufficient and insufficient physical activity in the light of its self-evaluation in the survey?
Material and methods. The research involved 182 high school students in Katowice. Physical activity was measured using the short form of the International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ).
Results. The total volume of weekly physical activity was higher in boys than girls. On the basis of a self-evaluation survey it can be concluded that 39% of girls and 44% of boys are highly physically active, and only 4% of girls and 3% of boys can be considered as insufficiently physically active.
Conclusions. The level of intensity of physical activity in the respondents is varied by gender. The small percentage of respondents classified in group of insufficiently physically active is probably due to an overestimation of physical activity in the survey.
