Abstract:

The relationship between physical fitness and performance, as determined by psychomotor response and psychological state was investigated in an experiment using two different physical fitness programs, a series of tests, and thirty-two subjects. The subjects were divided into three groups two experimental groups, each participating in different exercise programs, and a non-exercising control group. An indication of improvement in physical fitness of the two experimental groups was studied along with an indication of improvement in psychomotor response and a decrease in degree of anxiety, depression, and hostility. The exercising participants were asked whether they considered themselves in better physical and mental condition after the nine week program, and ninety-five percent of the exercising participants expressed a desire to continue with a physical fitness program.
