Objective. — To determine the influence of the level of physical activity on physical fitness, body composition and lipid profile and further explore the associations between fitness with these health outcomes in a population of overweight/obese adults. Methods. — Forty overweight/obesity participants with a caloric intake between a negative balance of 500 kcal/day and their estimated required energy intake were classified according to their level of physical activity. Anthropometric (weight and height), body composition (waistto-hip ratio, percentage of body fat and fat-free mass), clinical measurements (blood pressure), physical fitness (cardiorespiratory fitness — 6MWT —, handgrip strength and lower-limb muscle strength — MVC —) and lipid profile (total cholesterol — TC —, low — LDL — and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol — HDL —, triglyceride — TG —, and plasma glucose) were determined.
