Abstract
Glavni cilj ovoga rada je prikazati trend kretanja kardiorespiracijskog fitnesa kod učenika osmih razreda u periodu između 1999. i 2012. godine. U svijetu i u Hrvatskoj bilježi se pad razine tjelesne aktivnosti kod djece i mladih, posebno u razdoblju adolescencije. Jedan od važnih čimbenika koji je povezan s tjelesnom aktivnosti je kardiorespiracijski fitnes. Nije dovoljno poznat trend kretanja razine kardiorespiracijskog fitnesa kod djece osnovnoškolske dobi u Republici Hrvatskoj u razdoblju od posljednjih 15-ak godina. Uzorak ispitanika sastojao se od 687 ispitanika (304 učenika i 383 učenice) osmih razreda dvije zagrebačke osnovne škole. Provodilo se testiranje trčanja u 6 minuta, kao inicijalno testiranje na početku školske godine, te se rezultati prikazuju u metrima. Testom se procjenjuje razina kardiorespiracijskog fitnesa. Podaci pokazuju da su rezultati testa trčanja kod učenica u 6 minuta u 1999. godini (1178,1 ± 174,5 m) značajno bolji od rezultata iz 2012. godine (1030,2 ± 205 m). Kod učenika također su bolji rezultati zabilježeni 1999. godine (1281,9 ± 163,9 m), nego 2012. godine (1185,6 ± 200,3 m).

The main aim of this study was to show the trend of the cardiorespiratory fitness in the eighth-grade students between 1999 and 2012. In the world and in Croatia there are decreasing levels of physical activity among children and youth, especially in adolescence. Not enough is known about the trend in the level of cardiorespiratory fitness among children of primary school age in the Republic of Croatia in the period of the last 15 years. The examinee sample consisted of a total of 687 subjects (304 male students and 383 female students) of the eighth grade of primary schools in Zagreb. The tests of running in 6 minutes were conducted, as initial testing at the beginning of the school year, and the results are shown in meters. The test assesses the level of cardiorespiratory fitness. The data show that the results of the test run in schoolgirls in 6 minutes in 1999 (1178,1 ± 174,5 m) were significantly better than the results in 2012 (1030,2 ± 205 m). Also, the boys recorded better results in 1999 (1281,9 ± 163,9 m) than in 2012 (1185,6 ± 200,3 m).
