Determining the level of physical fitness of students of the Ukrainian State University of Railway Transport. The study involved 76 students who belong to the main medical group due to their health condition. The following methods were used in the study: theoretical analysis and generalization of literature sources, pedagogical experiment, testing, method’s of mathematical processing of results. The analysis of indicators of the level of physical fitness of first-year students showed that it mainly corresponds to “3” and “2” points, for second-year students – “3” and “4”. The worst in first and second year students are endurance. Based on the results of our pedagogical research, we can draw the following conclusions: 1. Timely diagnosis of the level of physical fitness of students at the beginning of university (first year) allows you to identify existing gaps in their physical fitness. 2. Timely diagnosis and control of physical condition in higher education allow to make appropriate adjustments to the program of physical education in order to improve and further develop the basic physical qualities of students. The results of the pedagogical experiment indicate that, at the time of testing, a higher level of physical fitness have young men of the second year. It should be noted that second-year students regularly attended physical education classes and followed a certain program to improve general physical fitness, which had a positive impact on the level of development of their physical qualities and physical fitness in general. Planning, implementation and management of the educational process in higher education institutions of Ukraine can be successful only with the receipt of objective data on the physical fitness of students. Analysis and generalization of literature sources showed insufficient study of the initial level of physical fitness of students.
