This research was conducted to examine the effect of 8-week life kinetic training on self-confidence, attention and psychological skill levels in sedentary men students. Fifteen sedentary men participated in the study and the research was conducted using the pretest-posttest research model. In order to collect the data, “D2 Test of Attention” developed by Brickenkamp (1981), “Self-confidence Scale” developed by Akın (2007), “Athletic Coping Skills Inventory” developed by Smith (1995) and personal information form were used. The data were evaluated with the SPSS 25.0 statistical package program and the significance level was considered as p<0.05. The normality test of the data was done with the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test, and the Wilcoxon test was used to compare the pre-test and post-test scores. According to the findings, no statistically significant difference was found between the 8-week life kinetic training sub-dimensions of sedentary men's self-confidence, attention and psychological skill levels (p>0.05). As a result, it could be argued that life kinetic training applied for eight weeks does not have a positive effect on increasing self-confidence, attention and psychological skill levels in sedentary men.
