Abstract


The simplest and easiest type of physical activity for a healthy individual is walking. Development of technology day by day brought along inactivity and related diseases. The purpose of exercise is to prevent and slow down diseases caused by a sedentary lifestyle. The aim of the study is to reveal the effect of walking on body composition of the individual and to investigate the relationship between the stepping frequency before and after taking a recreation course of the students studying at the faculty of sports sciences.

A total of 150 volunteers consisting of 97 males and 53 females aged between 18-26 and older participated in the study. The study lasted 12 weeks. The daily stepping frequencies of all participants were recorded with the pedometer program on their mobile phones. The recreation course was given as two hours of lectures per week to the students studying in three departments (teaching, coaching, management).

As a result of the correlation test used in this study, the stepping frequency was found to be increased after the recreation course was explained. Awareness was created after the lecturing. No significant relationship was found between this awareness and the age of males and females, and between this awareness and the number of distance and daily steps taken.
