There is a growing interest among corporations and government agencies in improving management and employee muscle. The list of organizations that have established physical fitness programs for their managers and employees is expanding every day. Those not yet committed are contemplating the consequences of initiating such an effort. This study was undertaken to give interested organizations a better idea of what to expect from improved management and employee muscle. The effort was focused on uncovering the personality and behavioral changes which result from improved physical fitness because there is lack of clear and consistent information in these areas. Because of the growing number of executives and managers who are committing themselves to better fitness, the uncovered personality and behavior changes were also related to common leadership traits. The results indicate that improved physical fitness can significantly affect the individual in terms of changes in personality and behavior. The changes also appear to have a significant positive effect on individual leadership traits. Author
