Childhood obesity has taken on epidemic proportions and is currently one of the most common public health problems. Being overweight negatively affects the fitness parameters of children of younger school age. The aim of this study was to determine the relationships and influences of anthropometric characteristics on the fitness parameters of boys aged seven to ten years. The sample of respondents was taken from the populations of overweight and obese boys, and a total of 931 respondents participated. Groups of subjects were selected based on the degree of nutrition determined by BMI. To determine the anthropometric characteristics of the subjects, parameters were used to assess the longitudinal, transverse and circular dimensionality of the skeleton, as well as body weight and subcutaneous adipose tissue. The assessed fitness parameters are muscle fitness, body composition and cardiorespiratory fitness. Appropriate statistical procedures have been applied for statistical data processi...ng. Canonical correlation analysis was used to determine the relationship between anthropometric characteristics and fitness parameters. Regression analysis was applied to determine the influence of anthropometric characteristics on fitness parameters. By analyzing the results, it can be concluded that in each group of subjects, body weight is an interfering factor when it comes to fitness parameters. The results of the canonical correlation analysis show a statistically significant correlation between anthropometric characteristics and fitness parameters at each age tested. By analyzing the results of regression analysis, it can be concluded that there is a statistically significant influence of anthropometric characteristics on the fitness parameters of boys aged seven to ten years.
