The rapid development of the digital sphere naturally leads to an increase in digital tools to improve the quality of life of society and the development of physical culture of the individual. The purpose of the study is to explore digital opportunities and tools to increase motivation for regular physical education. To study the motivation for physical activity, a survey was conducted of 112 MСU students aged 18 to 20 years who attend elective physical education and sports classes. 100 questionnaires were selected for analysis. As a result of the study, it was revealed that 47 % of students have regular physical activity in the amount of 3–6 hours per week. The main motive for physical education is determined to be physiological, related to the improvement of appearance. A conscious wellness motive for physical culture and sports activity was not registered in our study. As a result of the study, it was revealed that 56 % of respondents, mostly male, use “wearable devices”. The most common reason for purchasing such a gadget was physical education and sports, but only 40 % of students regularly use them. As individual goals for physical culture and sports, the majority of respondents (34 %) chose the number of steps and weight loss (32 %). The most common reason for not using digital technologies was the cessation of motivation, and as a result, a decrease in interest in physical activity. Considering the issue of physical education of students and digitalization as an integral process, including the development of new methods of conducting physical education classes using digital tools, taking into account the interests and needs of students, it will allow to bring learning to a completely new level.
