Background and Propose:The study conducted on Energy Expenditure Index includes 3 minute walk for 3 days/week. To find out the flexibility sit and reach test, behind the back reach test, intermalleolar distance was measured and submaximal HR was calculated. The aim of the study is effect of community fitness program in adolescents with cerebral palsy. Subjects: Sample of 30 adolescents with cerebral palsy. Method: Participants performed Energy expenditure index, Flexibility measured by the sit and reach test, the behind-the-back reach test and intermalleolar distance, HR for a standardized submaximal exercise Result: The study results as increase in energy expenditure index and flexibility in post exercise. Discussion and Conclusion: There is significant difference in post energy expenditure index than pre energy expenditure index and post physical activity than pre physical activity which showed the increased value of both energy expenditure and physical activity.
