To control major health problems, the main focus should be on the root cause-unhealthy living habits-and not only on the treatment of the diseases which may be considered as only the symptoms. Regular participation in moderate to vigorous exercise is believed to increase life span and decrease risk for many types of chronic disease. Researchers suggest males have been underrepresented in exercise intervention studies, resulting in less understanding of their exercise practices. Therefore, the present investigation attempts ‘To assess the physical fitness of selected adult men of Udaipur city’, with the objectives of assessing the nutritional status of adult men, finding out the body composition of the selected adult men and assessing the physical fitness of the selected adult men through a given activity. The results revealed a clear association between the nutritional status of the subjects, their body composition and their physical performance could be seen. A majority of subjects were observed to be in the normal and healthy ranges of the various health and fitness determining aspects. The poor physical fitness index of subjects which were not able to complete the test could be associated with high WHR, high body fat percentage, high BMI. The subjects thus should be motivated towards improving and maintaining an active style of living.
