Description A significant feature of the demographic development in Czechia is the increasing number of people over age 65. The number of the elderly is growing dramatically, the average life expectancy is growing too, and we see natality decreasing at the same time. There is a close connection between life expectancy and quality of life. Due to an international trend of aging population we see an increased attention paid to studies dealing with the factors that have positive or negative impact on successful aging. More than 200 people at the age over 60 were involved in an academic study performed by the Faculty of Sports Studies over the last five years. We examined various types of physical activities and their influence on parameters related to quality of life. In our publication we outline the findings of our research and we include the weaknesses and limitations of this study.
