Their physical fitness, including body weight, heart rate, lung capacity, body fat percentage, flexibility and grip strength became better were statistically significant at p < 0.05. When comparison the mean and the standard deviation of knowledge level scores, (of foods, exercise, mental) between the experimental group and the control group after the implementation program, it was found that the experimental group’s knowledge level of exercise were statistically significant at p < 0.05. Moreover, after implementation between group’s including body weight, heart rate, lung capacity and flexibility were statistically significant at p < 0.05.
