The objective of this study was to investigate the association between the lifestyle and the positive attitude (EñgEFD) or negative (EgEFD) of the students on Physical Education (PE). 46A cross-sectional study was conducted in 243 students (15.6 ± 2.5 years). Demographic information, opinion about PE, and self-perception were evaluated through questionnaires. Physical fitness was determined from FITNESSGRAM and EUROFIT battery. The percentage of fat was estimated from the equations of Slaughter et al. (1988). Descriptive analyzes and the t-test of independent measurements were conducted in the analyzes. On this sample, 74.5% of students say they like PE. EgEFD presented significantly higher scores compared to EñgEFD in strength, speed / agility, strength of trunk strength and aerobic resistance (p <.007). the EgEFDs have a better perception of their physical abilities, as well as being healthy and adopting healthier lifestyles (p <.001). The EgEFDs have a healthier functional and psychological profile, self-perceive better health and prefer to engage in physical activities rather than sedentary activities in their daily lives.
