The aim was to assess relationships between increased aerobic fitness sustained over 4 years, and changes in blood pressure (SBP and DBP) and lipids.
Measurements were made of BP, lipids, weight, and fitness in 1000 middle-aged men and women entering a fitness programme, and were repeated 2 and 4 years later.
The 342 men and women selected for this 4-year follow-up were either consistent fitness « gainers » (improved by >5%) or « non-gainers » (improved by <=5%) at 2 and 4 year stages.
For men, comparisons of these groups and multiple regression analyses failed to show significant relationships between changes in fitness and risk factors over the 4 year period.
