This study presents a comparative analysis of attitudes on physical fitness among the girl students in private and government campus, Nepal. Initially, it was hypothesized that there is no significance difference in attitude of physical fitness between the girl students of two different campuses. From among two hundred girl students of the campuses 100 students from each campus were purposively selected. A five point Likert-type scale was applied for data collection from the selected students who participated in practical examination. There were 10 positive and 10 negative opinion statements; altogether 20 opinion statements were used for data collection. It was found that all respondents showed positive attitudes towards physical fitness. In comparison to government campus students, the private campus students were more favorable towards physical fitness. In order to test whether there is significant difference in score between the girls of two campuses the t-test score was applied as statistical test at the 0.05 level of significance. The t-test was significant in both positive (p=0.015 < α=0.05) and negative (p=0.022 < α=0.05) statements at 0.05 level of significance. It is enough evidence in the data to reject null hypothesis; there is no difference between the attitude of physical fitness score between the girls of two campuses; the private and government campus. Therefore, there is significant difference between attitudes of physical fitness score between the girls of two campuses. The difference is due to the participation of private campus girl students more in sporting activities than government campus girl students.
