In the digital era, particularly with the rise of online teaching, traditional approaches to college physical education face challenges in adequately monitoring and enhancing students’ physical fitness. This study introduces a novel approach that integrates blockchain technology with a Machine Learning-IoT framework to evaluate and improve students' physical performance. Utilizing the Apriori algorithm, enhanced with particle swarm optimization and an improved K-means methodology, this system offers a robust tool for correlating student behavior with sports performance in a secure and decentralized manner. The proposed system uses blockchain for safe data management and IoT for real-time data collection, ensuring privacy as well as efficiency. The algorithm's accuracy, recall, and F1 values on the Iris dataset are 0.947, 0.931, and 0.928, respectively, with a considerable Calinski Harabasz score of more than 240. When applied to university student behavior data, the blockchain-enhanced system successfully mined association rules with a maximum confidence level of 0.923.
