Differentiation of fitness programs, self-monitoring diaries, integrative dependence of neurophysiological and psychological satisfaction factors, , neuroscientific perspectives of the fitness industry


The article is devoted to a complex research of interdependence of subjective indices of women's satisfaction during fitness training on differentiated planning of such training taking into account phases of the ovarian-menstrual cycle (OMC) and individual peculiarities of personal psychophysiological profile of participants.

The study involved 93 women aged 22–27 engaged in fitness at the sports club "Spartak" in Kamianske. Women were divided into two groups: EG – experimental group (n=51) and CG – control group (n=42). The first group was studied taking into account the phases of OMC, the second group – without it. To achieve the objectives we used the following scientific methods: theoretical, empirical, psycho-diagnostic, pedagogical testing, pedagogical experiment, methods of mathematical statistics.It was determined that the manifestation of physical skills is closely related to women's general physical well-being and mental parameters in different phases of ОMC. Comparative analysis of the data shows that the indicators of functional and psycho-emotional states of EG women significantly exceed the results of CG. The results of the article proved the importance of subjective markers of satisfaction and their determinant effects on the overall effectiveness of fitness and also proved the possibility to take into account the phases of OMC and the individual characteristics of the psychophysiological profile of women in the planning of fitness programs and changes in marketing policy of fitness centers.
