In this article we explored whether or not differences in health-related physical fitness exist among people with different leisure lifestyles. The Physical Fitness Scales for Taiwan Citizens (Cheng & Liu, 2001) was utilized to measure the health-related physical fitness of 241 college students. Factor analysis resulted in 4 dimensions; namely, dawn activity loving, sports loving, healthy diet, and vacation loving. Next, using cluster analysis, we identified 4 groups of college students, and they were dawn activity lovers, sports lovers, inactive healthy dieters, and vacation lovers. Finally, we explored the relationships among the 4 groups and their health-related physical fitness using one-way analysis of variance. The results indicate that college students who routinely engage in exercise tend to have physical fitness superior to those who do not exercise on a regular basis.
