Increased levels of daily sitting time are associated with increased cardiovascular disease and all-cause mortality. 1 , 2 In addition, increased sitting time is associated with increased cardiometabolic risk factors, such as increased low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, 3 , 4 decreased

Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a host of cardiometabolic risk factors commonly including abdominal adiposity, elevated triglycerides, blood pressure, fasting glucose, and low HDL cholesterol. This clustering of risk factors is associated with an increased risk of cardiometabolic diseases, type 2

The cardiometabolic health benefits of physical activity can no longer be denied, as the lack of physical activity is one of the most important predictors of mortality and burden of disease. 1 Lately, sedentary time has also been confirmed as a cardiometabolic health risk in itself, and meeting

benefits physical activity has for adults, including prevention and control of excessive weight gain, type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, dyslipidemia, and/or cardiometabolic syndrome, 2 low rates of physical activity participation persist among women of color. In the United States, health care costs

for cardiometabolic disease, such as whole-body adiposity ( 6 , 20 ). However, individuals with severe obesity are underrepresented in clinical exercise studies, often due to orthopedic or other safety concerns (eg, increased shortness of breath), hesitation to push participants to maximal effort, or

youth may improve likelihood of a physically active adult life. 4 Additionally, high levels of cardiometabolic risk factors for noncommunicable diseases (ie, adiposity, blood pressure, lipids and glucose metabolism) in youth is associated with type 2 diabetes and advanced atherosclerosis in young

overweight/obesity, low cardiorespiratory fitness, hyperglycemia, high blood pressure, and dyslipidemias are a significant issue, as they present as risk factors for cardiometabolic disease ( 15 , 45 ). International organizations recommend that adolescents should adopt and maintain healthy behaviors, such

observed increases in cardiometabolic responses ( Protas, Stanley, Jankovic, & MacNeill, 1996 ; Stanley, Protas, & Jankovic, 1999 ). To improve cardiorespiratory fitness and gait dysfunction, aerobic exercise on a motorized treadmill has been shown to be an effective intervention in those diagnosed with

Recent reviews have found that there are not convincing results between sedentary behavior association with elevated cardiometabolic risk factors and increased adiposity in children and youth, as it varies by type of sedentary behavior and cardiometabolic risk factors. 1 , 2 Studies conducted on
