Control group will carry on the activities as usual. The result showed the experimental group and the control group hadn’t remarkable difference in performance of cardio respiratory endurance and muscular fitness and muscular strength ,but had remarkable difference in performance of flexibility and attention after 15 weeks of the brisk-walking training.
