Abstract

Introduction: Chile in recent decades has experienced a change in its nutritional epidemiological profile, going from a situation characterized by a high prevalence of malnutrition and infectious/parasitic diseases to another completely different, where chronic and degenerative diseases have high prevalence. Objective: The aim of the study is to develop reference values of health-related physical fitness and health male students 10-14 years of the city of Chillan. Method: A descriptive cross-sectional study. The sample consists of 1,250 men aged from 10 to 14 years. Descriptive statistics were used for the preparation of these reference tables and these were divided into five classifications from very bad, bad, average, good and very good, within the age parameter. Results: We observed important levels of overweight were associated with low physical performance, raising the urgency to track in time, with tools for easy application as is this battery; in order to detect promptly the children who have low fitness levels and take measures to stimulate or improve physical capacity as a protective factors for health promotion and as an aid in the prevention of chronic diseases related to overweight or obesity. Conclusion: In this work we have established reference values for further studies regarding the health-oriented male students 10-14 years of the city of Chillan that will allow to asses and interpret correctly health-related physical fitness of this age group.
