The article is devoted to the research of the influence of training loads of different orientations on the level of logical thinking of female athletes and its relation with the success of foreign languages learning by them. The research involved 17–20 years old female students (n = 114), who were engaged in various sports during their studies. Two experimental groups were formed: group A (n = 50) consisted of female students who were engaged in speed and strength sports (freestyle wrestling, track and field athletics: sprinting, hurdling, jumping, shot putting and discus throwing); group B (n = 64) was represented by female students who practiced endurance sports (skiing, track and field athletics: 800, 1500, 3000 and 5000 m running; 200, 400 and 1500 m swimming). The control group (group C) consisted of female students who were not engaged in sports (n = 97). The research of indicators of logical thinking was carried out according to the method of “Numerical series”. In addition, we investigated the results of educational activities of female students of experimental and control groups on the average score in foreign (English) language learning. It was found that there are insignificant changes in the indicators of logical thinking under the influence of physical loads of speed and strength nature and there is a statistically significant improvement under the influence of loads on endurance. It was also found that the success of mastering foreign language by the students of the experimental group who practiced endurance sports is better than in the students of the control group, but without any significant difference. This shows that the rational combination of sports and learning does not harm the educational process, but also facilitates the foreign languages learning by female students.
