The objective of this paper is to provide an extensive literature review of academic papers written in English about The Relationship Between Physical Fitness, Physical Activity, Cognitive Functioning and Academic Success. The research is showing that there are more and more benefits of physical fitness and physical activity on students cognitive (executive functions) and academic success, and it has been implemented into many different educational systems already. Usually, we can find many literature review where authors are comparing how either physical fitness or physical activity benefits cognitive or academic success, but approach in each culture or education system is quite different. The studies reviewed suggest that physical activity and physical fitness are positively affecting academic performance and cognitive development, but it has been rarely compared how all 4 items are affecting each other and more research should be done from that perspective. Physical fitness and physical activity is definitely proven to be beneficial for students thinking and solving academic exams, but there is further investigation to be done to see how more beneficial physical activity and physical fitness can be regarding cognitive functioning (executive functions) and academic success.
