Physical fitness is one of the richest possession, it cannot be purchased; it has to be earned through systematic and daily routine of physical exercise/physical activity. One of the important, remarkable, beautiful, valuable and priceless things that God has created particularly on the earth is human life. Therefore, it is necessary to protect and maintain human life in order to achieve higher goals and objectives and also to live a happy and meaningful life. Fitness is the capacity of heart, blood vessels, lungs and muscles to function at optimum efficiency. Physical fitness is to the human body what fine tuning is to an engine. ‘the ability to endure, to cheer up, to withstand stress, to carry on in circumstances where an unfit person cannot continue, and is a major basis for health and wellbeing’. People can only fulfil their potential when their bodies are healthy and fit.The statistical analysis of data on shoulder muscular strength has been analysed by factorial analysis of variance to test the significant differences between the main effects (age group and areas) and their interactions (age group and areas). Post-hoc test was used wherever interaction was significant followed by post-hoc tests to find out the paired mean differences. The level of significances was set at 0.05.
