Abstract:

This study aims to establish physical fitness norms for male collegiate students aged 18-25, focusing on the AAHPERD Youth Fitness Test. Through descriptive statistics and percentile plots, various performance levels across various fitness parameters were analyzed. The data, collected from 198 participants, offer valuable insights into the distribution of physical fitness within this demographic. Performance is categorized into five grades, from "Very Poor" to "Very Good," allowing educators and health professionals to assess individual fitness levels and tailor interventions accordingly. These norms not only serve as benchmarks for evaluating fitness standards but also contribute to a broader understanding of physical health trends among young adults, highlighting areas for improvement and promoting optimal fitness levels among collegiate students.
