Abstract Introduction:<\b>
The quality of life is also influenced by person’s life satisfaction (LS) and physical activity (PA). This study assessed whether different levels of LS and well-being (WB) were associated with different types of performed adolescent’s PA and with meeting PA guidelines. Methods:<\b>
The research project involved 368 girls and 228 boys in age 15–19 years from 16 secondary schools in different regions of the Czech Republic. The Bern Subjective Well-Being Questionnaire for Adolescents and WHO-5 Well-Being Index were used to assess the LS and WB level. The weekly PA was self-reported on the International Physical Activity Questionnaire-long form and objectively measured by pedometer. Results:<\b>
The results indicated significant differences in vigorous PA between boys with different level of LS. Boys and girls with higher WB level realized more recreation PA compared to their peers with lower WB level. On top of that, girls with higher WB level realized significantly more moderate, vigorous and overall PA. Boys with higher LS level had 2.29 times greater chance to meet the PA recommendation of 20 minutes of vigorous PA in three days a week compared to their peers, while girls with higher WB level had 1.87 times greater chance to meet the recommendation of 11,000 steps per day. Conclusion:<\b>
Positive satisfaction from realized PA and meeting PA guidelines are essential for LS in adolescents. The comprehensive analysis of these associations can radically determine adolescent’s health. External funding details The research was supported by the Czech Science Foundation under the grant No. 13-32935S.
