Abstract

The high level of physical activity will support one’s physical fitness. Physical fitness is the main indicator that can predict physical abilities and health status. The purpose of this study was to determine the level of physical activity and physical fitness of university students. This research is an analytic observational study with test and measurement methods. 490 samples with ages ranging from 18 to 23 years were recruited for data collection by fulfilling the inclusion criteria, consisting of 217 males and 273 females. The International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ) instrument to measure the level of physical activity and a series of tests to measure physical fitness that has met the validity and reliability test. The series of instruments consisted of: (1) body composition measured by body mass index; (2) cardiorespiratory fitness measured by a 1.6 km run test; (3) musculoskeletal fitness measured by a wall half squat; (4) flexibility measured by sitting and reach test. The results showed that the level of physical activity in the light category was 93 students (18.98%), the moderate category was 212 students (43.27%), and the high category was 185 students (37.75%). Physical fitness showed musculoskeletal fitness in male and cardiorespiratory fitness in female need to be improved.
