* Corresponding author
Background: Sub-maximal exercise test is very useful in evaluating individual’s cardio-respiratory fitness. Many factors have impact on distance walked during six-minute walk test and considered to be ideal for patient population.
Methods: 100 young college going male and female subjects satisfying inclusion criteria performed six-minute walk test and vital parameters, prior to test and post test at regular interval till 3 minutes were taken. Body Mass Index (BMI) was calculated. Results: 20 male and 80 female subjects performed six-minute walk test. The mean distance walked by males was 534.24 meters whereas mean distance walked by female subjects was 506.7 meters.
Conclusion: It was observed that college going healthy subjects have normal cardio-respiratory endurance.
