The physical activity is the most effective way of preventing many chronic diseases, build and maintain healthy bones and muscles, control weight, reduce blood pressure, ensurea healthy blood profile, reduce fat, and promote psychological well-being.Patterns of physical activity acquired during childhood and adolescence are more likely to be maintained throughout the life span, thus sedentary behavior adopted at a young age is likely to persist. School can offer physical education and opportunities, both during and outside the school day, for all students to participate in physical activity and sports. Physical activity helps students to stay alert and concentrate better. Students who are physically active are more likely to have higher academic performance and less disruptive behaviors. The study was conducted during February 2017, in Shkodra Region. This is a transversal study. In this study were completed 200 questionnaires. The information is collected through a self-report. We held random cases in different schools among students of 15–18 years old in Shkodra Region. All data collected were calculated with SPSS 20 program. The questionnaire used is part of the standard questionnaire “Global School-based Student Health Survey” (GSHS) Core Questionnaire Physical Activity Module. The questionnaire measures the frequency of health behaviors such as: physical activity, traveling to school, participation in physical education classes, and participation in sedentary leisure behavior. The privacy of participating schools and students was protected.
