Long-term follow-up of cardiovascular risk factors after exercise training in obese children

Published in International journal of pediatric obesity. 2011, vol. 6, no. 2-2, p. e603-10
Abstract We previously demonstrated beneficial effects of physical activity on cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors, body mass index (BMI) and fat mass in pre-pubescent obese children. The aim of this study was to determine whether these changes were maintained 2 years later.
