Improving the effectiveness of the physical education of students of higher educational institutions is largely carried out through the use of various pedagogical approaches in the construction of this process. To date, a sport-oriented approach has been disseminated in the higher education system. For its successful implementation, first of all, students need a voluntary choice of the main means for their physical improvement. At the same time, there are reasons that motivate them to decide in favor of a particular type of motor activity. The question of internal motivations that determine the interest of students in regular classes in a specific type of exercise is not well understood. And this question has become the subject of our study. The continuous questionnaire method was applied to study the young men of the main medical group who entered the first year of university. The purpose of this work is to identify the qualitative and quantitative composition of motivations, which are the respondents’ explanations of the reasons for their preferences in the field of physical education. The questionnaire proposed eight options for motivation, with which students could explain the choice of the type of motor activity. To a certain extent, each motivation characterized each respondent’s personal qualities and the motivational sphere of his/her physical activity. During the survey, it was found that a small number of young men are guided in the individual choice of means of physical improvement to fashionable types of physical exercises or the advice of friends and classmates, think about comfortable conditions, or are not aware of the motives for classes. Most young people understand the applied value of the selected exercises, they want and hope to use them to increase their level of physical or sports fitness and receive psychoemotional satisfaction from training sessions. The results of a sociological study showed a rather high degree of formation and awareness of sports and athletic interests of students in their first year of study at a university.
