Common sedentary behaviors, such as television viewing, computer usage, and game console usage, have been associated in developing countries with significantly reduced physical activity levels, especially in children. This modern lifestyle has led to an increased amount of sedentary time, which is associated with obesity and other health-related complications (Owen, Healy, Matthews, & Dunstan, 2010). These abrupt health risks can have long-term consequences for children and adolescents, which affect them in adulthood(Surgeon General's Report, 2010). The lack of physical education standards contributes to childhood obesity. If physical education (PE) teachers have a better understanding of physical fitness education standards, the obesity rates among children and adolescents might be altered. The purpose of this study was to determine the health-related fitness knowledge of physical education teachers and their personal physical activity levels.
