President Serdar Berdimuhamedov, who is on holiday, and his son Kerimguly took a walk and a cyclo-cross along the coastal zone of the Caspian Sea in the early morning and also did sports exercises.

At present, the principles of a healthy lifestyle, laid down on the initiative of the Hero-Arkadag, are actively supported by Arkadagly Serdar. This is the reason for the rapid development of mass physical culture and sports, since these principles are defined as priority vectors of our state policy.

As in all seasons, the peculiar beauty of a summer morning, clean air and coolness have a positive effect on a person, give strength and inspiration, which is what the head of state and his son took advantage of that day. Of particular note are the health benefits of walking by the sea.

The President of the country with his son Kerimguly continued to ride bicycles in the territory of Avaza. Now, the green cover of trees and lawns in the tourist zone, where large-scale work is being carried out to maintain a high ecological level, cheers up vacationers.

Healing air and features of the recreational resources of the Avaza NTZ have become key factors for turning this paradise of the Turkmen land into a health resort and sports centre.

In recent years, high-class hotels and health resorts, which are part of the modern recreation system, have been built and put into operation there, and sports complexes, fitted with advanced equipment that meet international standards, where you can practice various sports, including those that have received the world fame, have been constructed.

A bike ride in the early morning along the ecologically clean coast of the Caspian Sea can give vigour and mood, and cycling can strengthen a person’s health and inspire to new achievements.

This sport is given a special role in the expansion of the mass physical culture and health movement and the establishment of the principles of an active lifestyle in society. In our country, great attention is paid to the comprehensive development and popularisation of cycling.

As you know, the Hero-Arkadag laid the foundation for a noble and very useful tradition – holding bicycle races. His initiative was supported by all compatriots who participate with great enthusiasm in the sporting events systematically held in the country.


It is gratifying that in recent years the number of fans of cycling, which is considered an environmentally friendly sport, has increased. Cycling has become a norm for people of different age categories. And this is another evidence of the success of the state policy aimed at the development of mass physical culture and sports of the highest achievements.

Cycling not only has a positive effect on the physical health of a person, but also gives an opportunity to admire the beauty of nature. At present, respect for the environment has become one of the integral components of national identity and a priority of the state policy.

Sport, health and ecology – these concepts are inseparable from each other. Environmental wellbeing is the most important part of a large-scale structural project and complex transformations and sectoral programmes, being implemented in the country, that are aimed at creating favourable conditions for people’s lives.

Then Arkadagly Serdar and his son Kerimguly visited the Avaza multi-profile sports complex.

There, the head of state did physical exercises on simulators and sports, demonstrating invariably high skills.

In recent years, in our country, at the state level, great attention has been paid to the comprehensive development of elite sports and the physical culture and health movement and the active involvement of the broad masses, especially young people, in this. This is the main condition for achieving the high goals set.

Today, health promotion through various sports has become a national goal that unites people of different ages and professions. The large-scale work begun on the initiative of the Hero-Arkadag, including the strengthening of the principles of a healthy lifestyle, has become one of the priorities of the socially oriented state policy pursued by Arkadagly Serdar.

According to medical science, when performing sports exercises, the activity of all organs and muscles of a person is increased, strength is gained, mood rises, and blood pressure stabilises.


As the head of state notes, each of the sports simulators has its own characteristics, to a certain extent it is significant both for hardening the body and for the physical condition of a person. If the exercises are performed correctly, the effect on health will be great.

The development of mass physical culture and sports, stimulating athletes to achieve high results is defined as one of the key aspects of the state policy. In this context, one of the most important tasks is to actively involve workers of all sectors of the economy, and especially young people, in physical culture and sports. This is of great importance not only for strengthening human health, but it also increases the inspiration of people.

Currently, physical culture and sports have become the norm for every citizen of the country. The work carried out in this direction is yielding positive results.

Today, the development of sports in the country has reached a new level. Turkmen athletes, actively participating in prestigious international competitions, achieve high results. This further enhances the authority of Turkmenistan as a country of health and inspiration. It should be noted that in our Motherland, cultural events are held simultaneously with sports events. This inspires young people to achieve even better results.

Having performed several exercises in the sports complex, the head of state Serdar Berdimuhamedov left the venue.
