A study was conducted in twin cities of Telangana, Hyderabad and secunderabad mainly to determine physical fitness of the nursery workers with socio-personal variables. Exploratory research design was selected for the study. A total of 120 plant nursery workers were selected. Height and weight of the nursery workers were recorded by using tools viz., Anthropometric rod and weighing machine. Descriptive analysis and chi-square were used for analyzing the data. Results of the study revealed that majority of the nursery workers height was found to be (mean=154cm) and weight (mean=55.86kgs) and were ranged between from 148-161cm and between 45-67 kgs respectively. Nursery workers belonged to mesomorph body type category and their body mass index were in normal category, so it can be said that the physical fitness of these nursery workers was good. Majority (41.67%) of the nursery workers belonged to the normal blood pressure. There was highly significant association between body mass index and age, marital status, educational qualification, number of years of work experience and work pattern of the nursery worker at 0.01 level.
