Resumen The aim of this study was to develop a practicable worksite physical fitness programme for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Community-based intervention consisting of a three-month exercise course was conducted, and its benefits evaluated. A self-administrated structured questionnaire and physical fitness examination were designed to compare the difference between pre and post intervention. After the intervention, health indicators such as weight, blood pressure, resting heart rate, waistline, BMI, front and back trunk flexibility, abdominal muscle durability and back muscle strength were significantly improved, and improvements in musculoskeletal disorders were seen in reduced neck, wrist and upper/lower back pain. Cardiovascular risk factors showed a significant improvement related to frequent participation in the programme and the exercise group reported a significant difference in overall health.
