Recent studies show that the physical fitness and personal resilience of Indonesians tend to be poor. Indicators of female's physical fitness tend to be poorer than male. This research focuses attention on female teenager’s as a vulnerable group both in physical fitness and personal resilience. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between physical activity, physical activity enjoyment, physical fitness and resilience among female high school students in Indonesian. The results revealed a positive correlation between physical activity and physical fitness, indicating that higher activity levels were associated with better fitness. Similarly, a positive correlation was found between physical activity and activity enjoyment, suggesting that those who enjoy physical activity engage in it more frequently. Additionally, physical activity enjoyment and physical fitness were positively correlated with personal resilience. However, no significant correlation was found between physical activity and personal resilience or between activity enjoyment and physical fitness. The result also showed that there is a 26% contribution of physical culture to personal resilience. The study concluded that physical fitness and physical activity enjoyment are linked to better levels of resilience, indicating that interventions promoting physical activity and enhancing enjoyment could be beneficial in improving resilience among female teenagers.
