Description In our article, we are trying to analyse motivation to physical activities of women of two age groups. According to Charvát (2002) motivation plays an important role for activity of an individual and the aim of motivation is a “completing reaction” or satisfaction of this need. This research was based on a questionnaire of physical activities. This article is concerned with the motivation of university female students and women to physical activities and the analysis of this motivation. Comparisons were made for 70 students between 19 and 25 of age and 221 women between 30 and 45 of age. The responses included, in the descending order, health, improvement of physical condition and nice figure in female students between the ages 19 and 25. Women between the ages 30 and 45 favor sports interests, relaxation and health.
