The research was held on the basis of North-Eastern State University, Magadan. Research methods. Information sources analysis and summarizing, methods of mathematical statistics. For the level of physical fitness analysis we used the results of normatives, provided by the fund of working program evaluating means of “Physical culture and sport elective courses” discipline. Results. The received results show the level of physical fitness decrease during the period of distant technologies and the mixed model of teaching use in the considered discipline. Negative dynamics was registered according to all six normatives, which in our opinion, is the result of lack of motion because of transfer to distance learning. Conclusion. The results were evident, taking into account the peculiarities of the studied period: lack of motion, motor activity restriction, distance learning and others. In our opinion, in order to solve this problem it is necessary to organize “Physical culture and sport elective courses” discipline (328 hours) only in a form of instructor led practical lessons: the 1st2nd course- 4 hours a week, the 3rd-4th course – 2 hours a week.
