CONTEXT: Physical activity (PA) is postulated to predict fitness components, especially cardiovascular endurance. But its relationship with agility remains largely unknown. AIMS: The aim of the study is to find the degree of relationship between PA volume and agility in healthy young adults. SETTINGS AND DESIGN: This cross-sectional study was conducted in a physiotherapy department of a physiotherapy college in South India. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Sixty young adults were recruited and assessed for PA and agility levels through International PA Questionnaire and Illinois test, respectively, after obtaining the informed consent. STATISTICAL ANALYSIS USED: The relation between PA and agility was assessed by Spearman's rank correlation test. RESULTS: Majority of the participants (53.33%) accumulated moderate PA. The mainstream of the participants (81.67%) showed poor agility. Our findings did not show a significant difference (r = 0.12, P = 0.361) between PA and agility among the young adults. CONCLUSIONS: PA may not be a crucial determinant for the agility component of fitness in young adults.
