Measurements for the study were conducted by visiting teachers' schools and interviewing on a voluntary basis.

According to this, it was found that the job performance score of the individuals with high physical activity status was significantly higher; The average job performance score of individuals with a seniority of 6-10 years is significantly higher than those with a seniority of 0-5 years; It is seen that the average job performance score of the graduates of the coaching department is significantly lower than the graduates of the department of teaching and management. When the physical activity status of the individuals participating in the study is considered as low and high individuals separately, it is seen that there is no statistically significant difference between the job performance score median in terms of gender, education, age, marital status, seniority year, working time and the departments they graduated from. As a result, it was found that 50,98% of physical education teachers were physically active and 49,02% were low.
