Presently the physical education and sport theory and practice gives a high priority to the self-reliant training models with the relevant process design and management competences viewed as the key factor for habitual practices and good progress in the theoretical studies and practical trainings. The self-reliant physical education may be efficiently designed and managed only when the theoretical and practical training tools are sensitive enough to the students’ values and priorities in the individual health agendas. Due modeling knowledge and skills are needed to select the most relevant physical education tools and design the own physical education progress path. Every student shall be competent enough in own physical education process design domain for success of the trainings. One of the key goals of the self-reliant physical education process is to secure high academic performance standards to meet the future professional requirements. Academic performance-improvement physical education service shall make an emphasis on the optimal physical activity of the students in every stage of the academic studies and physical fitness step (beginner trainings, intensive training phase and fitness for academic performance). We used an imitational modeling method to test progress in the academic self-reliant physical trainings with the following provisions: (1) Certain institutional limitations on the self-reliant trainings that need to be customized to the regular academic curricula; and (2) shortage of the analytical tools for this form of training service.

Keywords: students, physical education, self-reliant physical trainings, imitational modeling, education.
