The purpose of this study is to experiment, measure and evaluate the level of physical fitness among students of sport science based on age and gender. There are 78 students who has been involved in this physical fitness test study which are 51 male students and the other 27 are female students. There are 6 activities in this test which are 2.4 km. run, sit up, vertical jump for explosive strength, SEMO agility run, sit and reach and push up. All this test will evaluate the level of fitness from aspect agility, speed, endurance of cardiovascular, power of leg and flexibility.
