This study aimed to examine whether UKK Walk Test can be useful in physical education for estimating the cardiorespiratory fitness of students at university. At the beginning and end of the first semester in 2015, we estimated VO2max and fitness index (deviation value of VO2max) using UKK Walk Test among first-year students who attended physical training classes at Osaka University. At the beginning of the semester, there was no significant difference in VO2max and fitness index between the group that did high frequency exercise (twice a week and above) and the group that did low frequency exercise (once a week or less). However, at the end of the semester, these indices were significantly larger in the group that did high frequency exercise than in the other group. Additionally, there were significant increases in both indices of UKK Walk Test at the end of the semester. UKK Walk Test was thus indicated to be a useful tool for estimating the influence of exercise habit on cardiorespiratory fitness and the effect of physical training classes. However, when we applied it to the physical training class, we found some areas of improvement, such as a lack of understanding of exercise intensity during test, methods for coping with the malfunction of a heartbeat detector, and the shortening of test duration. In addition to solving these problems, we need to consider further utilization of UKK Walk Test in physical education at university for promoting lifestyle modification like an increase in physical activity.
