Background: Majority of students tend to have their own preferred pastime physical exercise in dealing stress and to benefit them in their academic piece. Aim: The present cross sectional survey is aimed to probe the positive networking between physical exercise and academic performances amongst future medical professionals in Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin (UniSZA). Review of literature: The reviews of previous researches validate that there may be some short-term improvements of stress related positive mental activity such as memory enrichment but the long-term improvement of academic achievement as a result of more vigorous physical activity is not well corroborated. The relationship between physical activity in student and academic outcomes requires further exposition. Justification: Since previous research did not clearly state the positive relationship between exercise carried out by students and academic excellence in a longer time span, therefore our research aims to find out apt exercise(s) that students prefer in improving their mental state and in turn academic enrichment among both preclinical and clinical phase MBBS students in UniSZA through survey done by questionnaires. Expected outcome: The outcome of this research will hopefully benefit not only the medical students of UniSZA but also others by encouraging a healthy lifestyle and also reduce the incidence of chronic health diseases. Methodology: The respondents are the future medical professionals (year I to V) of UniSZA residing in MAIDAM with 100 in number which includes both genders and different races. Results and Interpretation: The following yardsticks were scrutinized through the questionnaire and were tabulated as per the detail furnished. i.e. choice of exercise, period of practice, duration of exercise per session, past and current CGPA results, and their level of stress. Conclusion: From this cross sectional study among future UniSZA meducationists, it could be postulated that the choice of physical exercise may have an impact on stress-free academic performance.
