Among the array of means of academic physical education, it is fitness technologies with the gymnastics orientation that are the most affordable and effective. It should be noted that the students’ attitude to various health-improvement fitness technologies is characterized by positive motivation; the interest in them is growing significantly due to the modification of exercises and routines, the possibility to change their intensity and orientation.
Objective of the present study was to theoretically substantiate the educational model for implementation of the program-methodical support for building the motor competency in the students, including the comprehensive use of several fitness technologies with gymnastic orientation: step aerobics, fitball aerobics and stretching. This combination is necessary to ensure the uniform distribution of physical loads on the main muscle groups, as well as to increase the emotionality in the training process and promote interest in training.
The educational experiment revealed a positive dynamics in the indicators of physical and functional fitness of the female students participating in the experiment, which characterizes the level of formation of motor competency.

Keywords: fitness technology, formation, motor competency, health, load, physical education.
