ABSTRACT

Today, it is known that adult obesity is a result of child and adolescent obesity.

Our study was conducted on 22 male, 27 female of high school level students through 12 weeks aerobics exercise programme, 3 days a week at least, approximately 60 minutes, interval training model. This study focuses on measurements of age, weight, gender characteristics, physical composition as anthropometric measurement (subcutaneous fat, peripheral and diametric measurement), stretching test (sit-reach test), strength test (hand dynamometer), standing long jump, vertical jump, sit-up and push-up.
