Objective: This study was intended to analyze the effect of physical exercise through game-model and circuit model exercises approach on the maximum aerobic capacity. Methods: This type of research is quasi-experiments, with treatment in the form of a game model exercise and circuit model exercise. Pre-test of Maximum Aerobic Capacity using the MSFT (Bleep test) instrument was given before treatment. The treatment was given 16 times with details of 3 times per week. Target population is Faculty of Sports Science students of Universitas Negeri Padang, while the affordable population is 30 students of Sports Education Program academic year of 2013/2014. The sample was selected by using purposive sampling. The data were analyzed by using descriptive and inferential statistics, using t test at significance level α 0.05. Results: The game model exercise gives a significant effect on the increase of Maximum Aerobic Capacity of students of Faculty of Sports Science, Universitas Negeri Padang, (ρ = 0,000 <α 0,05). The circuit model exercise gives significant effect on the increase of Maximum Aerobic Capacity of students of Faculty of Sports Science, Universitas Negeri Padang, (ρ = 0,000 <α 0,05.) There is a significant difference of effect between the game model exercise and the circuit model exercise to the increase of Maximum Aerobic Capacity students of Faculty of Sports Science, Universitas Negeri Padang, (ρ = 0.001 <α 0.05). Conclusion: Both game model exercise and circuit model exercise have a positive effect on the increase of maximum aerobic capacity. However, the data analysis shows that the circuit model exercise is more effective than game model exercises in increasing maximum aerobic capacity.
