Abstract: In last few decades there have been an alarming trend was observed not only among young individuals but also in every person regarding gym-practice as most used fitness media. The present study has been undertaken to evaluate whether regular gym going modulates physical and physiological fitness or not.

A significant difference (p<0.05) in blood pressure, PFI, energy expenditure and MUAC was found in gym goers. But, in contrast, BMI, BF%, BSA, RHR, anaerobic power, VO2max and thigh and calf circumferences were found to be non-significant.
