The present study aimed to comparatively analyze the effects of the whole-body vibration exercise health promotion program on the agility, the quick reaction ability, and the flexibility of the test-takers. Total 30 test-takers had been prepared for the practical test as the subjects. They were divided into the three groups: the practical college entrance examination group with whole-body vibration exercise, the practical college entrance examination group, and the control group. The measurements of each item were made before and after the program applications of the side steps, the standing long jump, the standing high jump, the sitting trunk flexion, and the trunk forward flexion for 60 min 3 times a week. The side steps showed the significant differences among the groups. Although the standing long jump did not show any significant differences among the groups, the standing high jump showed the significant differences among the groups. Although the sitting trunk flexion showed the significant differences among the groups, the trunk forward flexion did not show any significant differences among the groups. But, the practical college entrance examination program group which carried out the whole-body vibration exercise at the same time showed the highest average value compared to the other groups. It was proven that, to the test-takers who had been preparing for the preparing examination for applying to a physical education-affiliated department, the whole-body vibration exercise program is helpful to the promotion of the health, including the agility, the quick reaction ability, the flexibility, etc.
