The data collection tool was the HPLP-II (Health Promotion Lifestyle Profile II) standard questionnaire. Data were analyzed with SPSS-21 software using descriptive statistics, independent t-test, Pearson correlation coeffitient, and ANOVA test.
Results: The mean age of the participants was 29.81±8.61 years and the average score of HPLP-II questionnaire was 18.64±3.49. The mean score of the subscales including promotion of health in lifestyle, health responsibility, physical activity, nutrition, spiritual growth, interpersonal relationship, and stress control were 2.5±0.6, 7±0.5, 1.9±0.6, 3.0±0.4, 3.0±0.5, 2.9±0.5, and 2.6±0.5, respectively. There was a significant relationship between the physical activity subscale and women’s occupation (P-Value≤0.001). The relationships between the spiritual growth and interpersonal relationship subscales and the educational level were also significant (P-Values=0.038 and 0.011, respectively).

Regarding the importance of physical activity in women’s health, motivational approaches should be used to increase their physical activity.
