The given study was intended to test and analyze the Belgorod State National Research University students’ physical fitness by the Russian Physical Culture and Sports “Ready for Labour and Defence” (GTO) Complex test standards. Sampled for the Russian Physical Culture and Sports “Ready for Labour and Defence” (GTO) Complex year- and gender-specific tests were the physical education Department students (n=175, including 104 males and 71 females). The test data analysis found the following: (1) About 30% and 40% of the male and female groups (respectively) were successful in the tests to qualify for a Russian Physical Culture and Sports “Ready for Labour and Defence” (GTO) Complex badge; (2) Physical fitness test rates were virtually year-unspecific; (3) Most difficult for the sample were the endurance-rating 2/3km race tests; (4) The relatively high success rate in the Russian Physical Culture and Sports “Ready for Labour and Defence” (GTO) Complex tests was indicative of the fairly good physical fitness and versatile physical development of the physical education Department students.
