ABSTRACT

Background: This paper discusses the scientific approach in Physical Education. Physical Education emphasizes personal or body fitness. It promotes healthy living by exercising the body. Purpose: This study was aimed at analyzing the influence of the Physical Education approach to the creativity and physical fitness of high school students in mountainous areas. Methods: The method used was an experiment with pre-test and post-test designs. The populations of this study were students of Lembang Public Senior High School 1, consisting of 2 groups. 36 students were taken as samples through simple random sampling technique. The instruments used were creativity tests and physical fitness tests. The data were processed using independent t-test statistical analysis with a confidence level of 0.05. Results: The independent t-test calculation results, both the student's creativity and physical fitness components, showed a significant effect. Conclusion: The scientific approach in Physical Education carried out 3 times a week can increase the creativity and physical fitness of high school students living in mountainous areas. Meanwhile, if it is only done once a week, the results will be lower.
