Background
Literature concerning quality of life and physical activity relationships in younger working-age people is scarce but suggest that some quality of lifefactors depend on physical activity.

Objectives
The aim of the study was to identify these relationships.

Material and methods
The material included 2,691 participants (1,321 men and 1,370 women) aged 18–44 years living in Wroclaw. The International Physical Activity Questionnaire, Short Form (IPAQ-SF) served to assess habitual physical activity. Quality of life was determined with the World Health Organization Quality of Life (WHO QoL-BRE F) questionnaire.

Results
The 68.5% level of physical activity among Wroclaw residents proved to be sufficient in the context of the WHO recommendations. More than half (56.3%) of the respondents undertook at least 75 minutes of high-intensity physical activity, and 12.2% carried out moderate activity for at least 150 minutes per week. Among men, the chance that they would assess their quality of life as high was 82% more in people performing at least 75 minutes of high-intensity physical activity per week than in those undertaking less physical activity

Conclusions
Most participants met the WHO health-promoting physical activity standards. In the group of men, statistically significant positive relationships were observed between quality of life and high-intensity physical activity.
