Background: Findings indicate a direct relation between engagement in physical activities, dietary habits and a healthy lifestyle. An active life and a nutritional diet are associated with substantial health benefits. But people’s interest in health outcomes as well as their level of engagement in physical activities is influenced by a wide array of determinants, among which socio-cultural factors play an important role. Material and methods: Our paper investigates how much Romanian adults are engaged in exercising and aims to identify their health-related behaviors Data were collected by questionnaire from 400 subjects. Results: Research results indicate that not many Romanian adults are interested in their health. However, those who are preoccupied with this tend to adopt a healthy lifestyle by engaging themselves in various physical activities, feeling motivated about this and eating correctly, as well. Conclusions: The level of engagement in physical activity is individually determined by social covariates, such as education, income, occupational status or age.
