The relationship between physical fitness and performance as determined by psychomotor reaction times and psychological state was investigated in an experiment using two different exercise programs and thirty subjects. There were ten subjects in each exercise group and the remaining ten were in a control group. The statistical tests used in this investigation suggest that the subjects in the exercise programs significantly lowered their psychomotor reaction times as a result of their exercise while the psychomotor reaction times of the control group were unchanged. No statistical evidence of a change in the psychological state of the subjects as a result of exercise was shown.
