Evaluating factors of the level of cardiorespiratory fitness
The lack of attention from the medical world
In this rather bleak scenario, however, there are opportunities. First, low cardiorespiratory fitness is almost always the result of a sedentary lifestyle; therefore it can be increased. Second, the most substantial benefits can be obtained by those who move from a low to a moderate level of cardiorespiratory fitness. For each MET increase (MET is a unit of measure of cardiorespiratory fitness), there is a reduction in the risk of incurring into cardiovascular disease ranging from 10 to 20%.
