The purpose of this study is to develop physical fitness test reference norms for the Practical Assessment to assess the teacher’s trainee health related physical fitness from the Teachers Institute of Training base on age and gender. The main objectives of this study was to identify the differences in physical fitness based on health component such as the cardiovascular endurance, muscle endurance, muscle strength, flexibility and body mass index as well as build a health physical fitness norm reference test for Practical Assessment at the Teachers Institute of Education. Samples are 733teachers trainees which comprises 257 male and 476 female age 18 to 22 years. The measurement of the physical fitness is being acquired base on the Prudential FITNESSGRAM® test batteries that comprises of the PACER, Curl-up, Trunk-Lift, Push-up and Body Mass Index. Comparison of the trainee teachers by gender and age for each component of the fitness test showed significant differences and norms developed by the researchers based on gender and age showed a difference and improves the scores for each level, excellent to poor fitness test components except the test for muscle strength of the female trainees [18 Years (Min = 17:48, SD = 1.73)], [19 Years ((Mean = 5.18, SD = 2.28)], [20 years (mean = 16.81, SD = 2.72)], [21 Year (Min = 31.88, SD = 4.19)] and [22 Year (Min = 17:21, SD = 3.89)], because the raw scores obtained are very low compared to male trainees [18 years (mean = 39.94, SD = 2.55)], [ 19 years (mean = 38.72, SD = 2.75)], [20 years (mean = 40.80, SD = 5.45], [21 years (mean = 43.38, SD = 4.09)] and [22 Year (Mean = 38.93, SD- 3.89)].
