Recently, the effects of some physical fitness variables on performance have emerged as popular research topics for many researchers working in the field of sports sciences. Factors affecting this performance, which is the center of attention of researchers, bring along many different studies. A group of 40 women with a sedentary lifestyle residing in Gaziantep participated voluntarily. 24 hours before the start of the study, the subjects were asked to make preparations for the workout, were informed regarding the details of the research, were asked to wear clothes in the manner required by this study. Care was taken for the subjects participating in the study to be selected by individuals whose age, height, weight and body mass index values were close to each other. In addition, the subjects selected for our study were selected from healthy individuals without anatomical disorders by determining the lower and upper limits of foot sole and foot comb measurements. The tests used in the study were carried out in the Indoor Sports Hall by using the necessary tools and equipment and by resting the participants in the test. In this study, in order to evaluate balance performance, which is an important factor in sportive performances, Y balance scores will be compared with foot sole and comb measurements and the results will be tried to contribute to science.
