Makale Özeti: This research aims at examining gym members' perceptions of life quality. The research was conducted in the survey model. The quality of life scale was acquired from the world health organization (2015). The scale has four subdimensions: physical, psychological, social and environmental domains. The study group of the research was composed of 100 individuals who are members of a private gym located in mecidiyeköy, istanbul. Percentage, frequency, and crosstab methods were used to find about the distribution of participant demographics. To test whether subdimensions of the scale exhibits normal distribution, the kolmogorov-smirnov test was performed and it was found that all subdimensions of the quality of life scale exhibited normal distribution. (p<0.05). Accordingly, the independent t-test and the one-way variance (anova) test were applied for two-variable data at the significance level of α = 0.05 and multi-variable data respectively. Post-hoc tests were utilized for finding the difference between the groups. As a result of evaluating the findings, participants' quality of life did not differ significantly by gender in the physical, psychological, social and environmental domains. When considered by the gender variable, a significant different was found in the psychological and environmental domains. In the psychological domain, the participants whose ages varied between 23 and 26 had a higher quality of life than those whose age were 31 and above. Those whose aged varied between 27 and 30 also had higher quality of life than those whose ages were 31 and above. In the environmental domain, the participants whose ages varied between 23 and 26 had higher quality of life than those whose ages varied between 18 and 22 and were 31 and above. On the other hand, a statistically significant difference was found only in the psychological domain in terms of the income level variable. The life quality of those whose income were lower than try 1500 were significantly found to be lower than those whose income were higher than try 3000. It is considered normal that individuals' perceptions of life quality increase as their income levels increase, too. The research can be enriched with participants of different characteristics.
