The term aerobic is a new word but not a new idea. Aerobics is a progressive physical conditioning programme that stimulates cardio respiratory activity for a period sufficiently long to produce beneficial changes in the body. This study was designed to effect of aerobic training program on agility and cardio respiratory endurance of college men. To achieve the purpose of the study 30 college men were selected from Bharathiar University Departments. Their age ranged between 21 and 25 years and they were divided into two equal groups consists of 15 each. Group I underwent the aerobic training program and Group II acted as control group. The training was given to the experimental group for 3 days per week for the period of 12 weeks. The control group was not given any sort of training except their routine work. The data were collected from the subjects and it was statistically analyzed with dependent ‘t’ test to find out significant improvement if any at 0.05 level of confidence. The results speculated that the agility and cardio respiratory endurance of college men improved significantly due to the influence of aerobic training program with the limitations.
