Abstract

Because of the potential health benefits associated with physical fitness, it is recommended that American adolescents perform physical activity at specified intensities and durations (Sallis & Patrick, 1994) to produce acceptable physical fitness levels. A consistent relationship between measures of physical activity, physical fitness, and cardiovascular disease risk factors in adults has been reported (Thompson, Jarvie, Lahey, & Cureton, 1982; Blair et al., 1989). A positive relationship between physical activity and physical fitness among youth has also been shown (Pate, 1991).
