The purpose of this study was to compare selected physical and motor characteristics of students who exercise regularly and who do not. In this research, measurements were realised with 53 people between the ages of 19-25, who train regularly and who do not. Participants were divided into 4 groups according to their training situation and gender characteristics. Age, height, body weight, body mass index, flexibility, balance, vertical jump, anaerobic and aerobic characteristics of the participants were determined. The obtained data evaluated by the SPSS (v22.0) program. Since the data were not distributed normally, the Kruskal Wallis test was used, and the Mann-Whitney U test was used to understand from which groups the difference arose. The level of error set as 0.05. According to the results of the Kruskal Wallis test; While there was a statistically significant difference between the groups in terms of body weight, height, aerobic capacity, peak power, average power, minimum power, and vertical jump values, there was no significant difference in terms of body mass index, fatigue index, balance and flexibility values.
