Research aim: This research has been intended to study and evaluate the relationship between the level of physical training, stress, job satisfaction and the quality of life. It has been endeavored to read different articles and international journals displayed by various specialists and researchers regarding the impact of physical training on stress level, quality of life and job satisfaction. The methodology has been prepared with sources of data and sampling techniques. It selected 120 participants and received 92.5 percent response rate, measurement items of each factor being fixed with valid source, quantitative & qualitative methods for data collection such as questionnaire and open questions. All data collected are found reliable. Findings from data analysis are that people who train at a frequency of around 0 to 2 times per week have a moderate working hours per week, while people who train at a frequency ranged from 5 to 7 times per week have a higher load of working hours. Nevertheless, people who train more than 7 times per week have lower working hours. The scale of fitness reached by people who train 0 to 2 times per week is low which is normal comparing with people who enjoy more training hours per week. Concerning the stress level, the findings reveal that the average of stress does not really differ from a specific training hour category to another, since it is almost the same level of stress. This also applies to the job satisfaction level that is almost stable in all categories of training hours. However, additional hours of training per week are reflected in an increase of the general quality of life. Discussions on findings of data analysis and outcomes of the literature review are made and conclusions are drawn that physical activity does not have direct impacts on job satisfaction, as some of the non-satisfied employees may train regularly. It has no impact on stress level either.
