Title of project: 
Associations of Cardiorespiratory Fitness, Body Composition, Physical Activity and Sedentary Time with Cardiometabolic risks
Proposal summary: 

Components of physical fitness such as physical activity and body composition has been associated with cardiometabolic risk factors in children and adolescents in several cross-sectional and a few longitudinal studies. However, it remains unclear how objectively measured cardiorespiratory fitness, physical activity, and sedentary time and body composition associates with individual and clustered cardiometabolic risk factors from childhood (9 years) through young adulthood (24.5 years). Our current projects B3455 and B3622 are investigating the roles of these predictors with vascular outcomes from childhood through young adulthood. For a holistic understanding of the interrelatedness of vascular and cardiometabolic health across early life, we are therefore investigating this further using our current ALPSAC project data.

Impact of research: 
Our research has the potential to improve understanding of the physiological mechanism and epidemiology of disease evolution.
