Abstract: The purpose of the study was to evaluate the body mass index, resting heart rate and blood pressure of sportsperson and non-sportsperson. The subjects of the study were 40 male (20 sportsperson and 20 non-sports person) and 40 female (20 sportsperson and 20 non-sportsperson) subjects of Kurukshetra District of Haryana. The age of subjects was ranged 19 to 27 years. The BMI was calculated with the measures of weight and height. Resting heart rate and blood pressure variables were measured by using Automatic Digital Blood Pressure Monitor. The ‘t’ tests were employed for analysing the data and the hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. According to our findings, no significant differences were found on BMI, heart rate, systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure between male sportsperson and non-sportsperson. Significant difference was found between female sportsperson and non-sportsperson with regard to systolic blood pressure. There were no significant differences found on body mass index, heart rate and diastolic blood pressure between female sportsperson and non-sportsperson.
