    Resum

    The aim of this study was to analyze the relationship between fitness, selective attention and the physical activity habit in high school students. The sample was configured by a total of 97 participants, 51 females (n = 51) and 46 males (n = 46) from Barcelona (Catalonia), aged between 13 and 15 years (13,7 ± 1,17). To analyze the selective attention capacity, it was used the Perception of Similarities and Differences Test (CARAS-R). Regarding physical fitness, linear velocity (30-meter dash test), lower body strength (board jump test), agility (10x5 meter test) and aerobic capacity (Luc-Léger test) were evaluated. Finally, the physical activity was calculated with the International Physical Activity Questionnaire adapted for adolescents (IPAQ-A). The results showed that the subjects with higher performance in the Luc-Léger test obtained better scores in the CARAS-R test. A high correlation was also obtained between the records of the Luc-Léger test and the CARAS-R test in both boys and girls and a high correlation between the IPAQ-A questionnaire and the CARAS-R test in boys. These findings highlight the relationship between selective attention and the fitness level in adolescents. In this sense, the importance of practicing physical activity at this age is reinforced, suggesting that the increase of physical condition may have positive implications on selective attention.
