Introduction. Organized physical activity (PA) is among factors that significantly influence the amount of realized PA. Aim. The aim of this study was to collect and analyze of the influence of BMI on the number of steps among women while undergoing obligatory sport camp as part of physical education studies and during study time at university. Materials and methods. The studies included women (n=60) ranging from 19 to 25 years of age. Their weekly physical activity was monitored using an accelerometer ActiGraph. The significance of the differences between the results for two consecutive measurements are pointed out among the same people, but under different conditions there was assessed at-student test for the variables. Compliance of measurement was described using testing and Bland-Altman chart. For the level of statistical significance p < 0.05 was adopted. Results. The requirements of the WHO on the minimum physical activity were met by almost all students. There is a lack of presence of a statistically significant relationship between BMI and the number of student steps, both in the case of measurement during study time (R = -0.03; p = 0.815) and at camp (R =-0.02; p = 0.865). Conclusions. Women are characterized by high activity (number of steps). BMI does not affect the number of steps for studies. Students meet the requirements of WHO (10000 steps).
