of this study is to discover how many students have a systemic workout routine.
The members of this group aimed to investigate the types of workout routines the
students practiced, how often they did so, and to determine the impact of a systematic
workout routine on the well-being of medical students at Texila American University.
This study was established from the responses of one hundred and twenty medical
students at Texila American University to a questionnaire distributed by the members
of the group via online. The questionnaire consisted of fourteen questions that
mainly focused on the workout routine, well-being, and academic performances of
each student. In view of the fact that “well-being can be understood as how people feel and how they function both
on a personal and social level, and how they evaluate their lives as a whole,”. The findings revealed that even
though less than half of the students regularly worked out, having a workout routine,
or simply exercising ever so often helped boost students’ mood, strengthen their
mental, emotional, and physical health as well as improve their academic performance
overall. The results of our research were in accordance with our hypothesis, which
was: “A regular workout routine has a positive effect on the general well-being
and academic performance of medical students at Texila American University by improving
brain function and mood.” While the results obtained were in agreement with our
hypothesis, they were somewhat hampered by the fact that only 43% (52 students)
of our respondents had a systematic workout routine.
