dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of a 10 week aerobic movement program for overweight children on cardiovascular fitness, body composition, self-esteem, and body-esteem. The subjects for the study consisted of 20 children (17 females and 3 males) ages 8-12. One group (n=12) consisted of overweight children and one group <n=8) consisted of average weight children. Cardiovascular endurance was measured in seconds with a two mile walk/Jog In the school halls. Self-concept was measured with the Piers-Harris Children's Self-Concept Scale. Body-esteem was measured with Mendelson and White's Body-Esteem Scale. A 2x2 univariate statistical analysis of variance (ANOVA) was employed to determine significance of effect. Overweight and average weight children were the independent variables. Self-esteem, body-esteem, and cardiovascular endurance were the dependent variables. Body composition (tricep skinfold measurement) was used to distinguish the two groups and determine weight loss due to the program. The ANOVA indicated no statistically significant Improvements In cardiovascular endurance, self-esteem and body-esteem in overweight children In comparison with average weight children after a 10 week aerobic movement program.
