The principles of a healthy lifestyle

To date, independent, permanently neutral Turkmenistan has been recognized as a sports power.

The importance of the digital system in sports

The development of modern society is closely linked to the digitalization that is taking place around the world. The scientific and technological development is conducive to modernization in all spheres of life, including in physical culture and sports. The use of digital technology in sports offers unprecedented opportunities. Modern technologies in sports help to achieve positive results in effective organization of training sessions, in recreation and recovery processes, in reducing the time required for post-injury recovery, and in combating doping. They increase the effectiveness and fun of the training process and prevent fatigue.

For the universal well-being

While the use of the bicycle helps keep a person active and in good health, its public use is related to the concern for nature and ecology. When people ride a bicycle, it does not release any harmful substances into the environment. That is why, the popularity of bicycles, which have great importance for health and ecology, has been increasing worldwide in recent years. The concern for human health and nature are the priorities of state policy in our Motherland, which is oriented towards the development goals aimed at universal well-being. The promotion of a healthy lifestyle, the development of high-level sports and the mass physical education and health movement reflect the large-scale efforts in the field of public health in our country.
