The purpose of the study was to find out the effects of aqua aerobics and floor aerobics on breath holding time among school girls. To achieve this purpose of the study, ninety school girls were selected as subjects who were studied Cornation Higher Secondary School, Sivakasi. The selected subjects were aged between 15 to 17 years. The selected subjects were randomly divided into three groups of 30 subjects each group. Group one acted as experimental group I and group two acted as experimental group II and group three acted as control group. Group one underwent floor aerobics, group two underwent aqua aerobics training for eight weeks and group three underwent routine physical exercise. The subjects were tested on selected criterion variables such as breath holding time prior to and immediately after the training period. The selected criterion variables such as breath holding time was measured by using stop watch. The analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to find out the significant differences if any, between the experimental group and control group on selected criterion variables separately. In all the cases, 0.05 level of confidence was fixed to test the significance, which was considered as an appropriate. The result of the present study has revealed that there was a significant difference among the experimental and control group on breath holding time. Key words: aqua aerobic, floor aerobic, breath holding time
