Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to find out the effect between physical fitness test results and physical activity participation among university students. The researcher used quantitative research methods to collect the required data. One thousand one hundred and fifty-six students participated in this study. Data were analyzed on the results of physical fitness tests for the past three academic years (From 2017-2020). The study found that female trainees had better flexibility than males, with a decrease in flexibility across years. Male participants had better muscular endurance than female participants. Male student participants performed better than females in cardiorespiratory fitness. Female student participants had lower explosive power than males. There were significant differences in participation in physical activity by gender; however, there were no significant differences between students in the other colleges.
