Abstract
Fitness indicators have a close relationship with several health indicators. Besides, that has a function to find out the people’s fitness indicators, and it also has the potential to gain the fitness targets that can be achieved by doing physical exercise. However, the high variation in fitness assessments makes fitness not accessible from a single item, and it is not easy to know based on one item. This research aims to develop a fitness measurement tool that is quite easy for the general population. 500 samples male and female with ages ranging from 18 to 35 years were recruited for data collection by conducting a fitness test by sitting up and down in the 40 cm bench (UNESA physical fitness test) and supervised to apply the standard procedures. Data were processed with descriptive quantitative percentages with five rating scales. The results of the effectiveness test showed that sitting up and down bench test did not differ significantly (p <0.05) with the comparison test.
