Abstract

Objective: High physical fitness (PF) level is a significant health determinant in children and adolescents so that it is important to identify the factors affecting PF in this population. Despite available studies highlighting the relationship between PF and characteristics of children, there is still a need to uncover how the health status and lifestyle of children impact different PF indicators. Thus, the purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between physical fitness, and the health profile and lifestyle of children.
