The extensive changes in the lifestyle of people also influence the physical development of children and youth. Therefore, schoolbased physical activity (PA) interventions are important in improvements of PA level of children and their outcomes. Studies of physical development of children aged 10-12 have revealed that the proportion of overweight and obese children in Slovenia has been increasing particularly in this age group and that the physical fitness of these children has been decreasing even more than amongst adolescent youth. A school-based PA intervention can significantly influence the physical fitness of children. Therefore, the concept of design of new PA interventional programme (non-compulsory elective subject Sport) grounded on research-based data of children physical fitness, is presented to show that the planning of such intervention programme should be based on research evidence, should include modern approaches to programme contents and their delivery, should be organizationally well designed and should also be provided by professionally competent teachers.

The study titled “The risk factors of noncommunicable diseases among adult population of the Roma community” is the first-of-its-kind research conducted among Roma people in Europe. With this study, which was already conducted among the adult population of Slovenia in the years 2001, 2004, 2008 and 2012, we investigated health-related life-style behaviour of citizens (smoking, dietary and physical activity habits, drinking habits, habits related to the road traffic safety...). Results of this study provide a basis for formulation of policies and programmes for enhancing and protecting the health of Roma people, and implementation of the policies/programmes aimed at reducing health inequalities.

Properly selected and prescribed physical acti - vity during pregnancy has a favorable effect on the health of pregnant women and the fetus, and is excellent preparation for childbirth. Absolute and relative contraindications to exercise during pregnancy are well defined, as well as the war - ning signs to terminate exercise while pregnant. Knowledge of these is essential for physically ac - tive pregnant women and for exercise professio - nals that work with pregnant women. Pregnant women should be moderately physically active every day of the week for at least 30 minutes. The term moderate is thoroughly and clearly de - fined in the guidelines. Resistance exercises du - ring pregnancy are safe but it is advised to use light loads and a large number of repetitions (e.g. 15-20 repetitions). Strength exercises for the pe - lvic floor muscles deserve a special place during pregnancy. Appropriate forms of physical activi - ty for pregnant women are walking and jogging, swimming and aquatic exercise, cycling, Pilates and yoga, aerobics, fitness and cross-country skiing. Certain forms of physical activity requi - re special adjustments (alpine skiing, ice skating and rollerblading, racket sports, team ball games, horseback riding and scuba diving).
