The objective of the study was to analyse the cognitive evaluations of subjective wellbeing (SWB) among healthy women with different sport participation levels by satisfaction with specific life indicators, specific life domains, and by the overall
quality of life (QOL). Three samples of healthy women (n=136) categorized by the level of sport participation were recruited for the study: elite athletes (n=25), recreational athletes (n=58), and non-athletes (n=53). The Subjective Quality of Life Analysis questionnaire and the World Health Organisation QOL User Manual were used as primary research methods. Healthy female elite and recreational athletes reported significantly higher satisfaction in their lives with life indicators: justice, truth, leisure activities, safety, and freedom compared to healthy female non-athletes. Healthy female elite and recreational athletes reported significantly higher satisfaction in their lives with Psychological health and Environment domains as well as by the overall QOL compared to healthy female non-athletes.
