ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to reveal the physical fitness of futsal athletes in the match preparation stage. This study was a descriptive research with 22 futsal athletes from Cimahi, West Java, Indonesia. As the research sample, we included 12 male futsal athletes and 10 female futsal athletes. The used instruments to measure physical fitness are; (1) Speed (i.e. run test for 30 meters); (2) Flexibility (i.e. sit and reach); (3) Arm strength (i.e. medicine ball); (4) Leg strength (i.e. vertical jump); (5) Arm muscle endurance strength (i.e. 1-minute push up); (6) Abdominal muscle endurance strength (i.e. 1- minute sit up); (7) Back muscle endurance strength (i.e. 1-minute back up); (8) Abdominal muscle endurance strength (i.e. 1-minute half squat); and (8) VO2 Max (i.e. Yoyo test). Collected data were analyzed descriptively and analytically using SPSS version 24. The result showed that physical fitness male athletes in Cimahi have an average completion of each component of 73%, categorized as Fair. Meanwhile, the female athletes in Cimahi only have an average completion of each component of 63%, categorized as Poor. Some factors such as genetics, training, gender, age, body fat, and daily activities affect physical fitness. A physical fitness training program should be arranged, organized, and implemented properly and systematically to work up the dominant physical fitness in preparing for a competition.
