Health Benefits Of Fitness

Cardiorespiratory Fitness, Body Composition, And All-Cause And Cardiovascular Disease Mortality In Men

by Chong Do Lee, Steven N. Blair and Andrew S. Jackson

Cardiorespiratory fitness and body fatness were measured by treadmill in 21,925 men aged 30-83, of whom 428 died over 8 year followup. All-cause mortality risk was correlated with poor fitness irrespective of body fatness. Thus, fitness is more important than leanness and may reduce obesity risk.
