The purpose of the present study was to investigate the relationships of physical fitness, body mass index (BMI), waist-hip ratio (WHR) and sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) with lipid and glucose metabolism in premenopausal obese women aged 32 to 49 yrs (n=24). WHR was significantly correlated with HDL-C, HDL2-C and Apo B., but not correlated with BMI%fat, maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max), triglyceride (TG), very low density lipofparto, tein% and Apo A 1. VO2max/kg was significantly associated with BMI, TG, HDL-C, HDL2- C., Apo Al, low density lipoprotein (LDL), SHBG, glucose metabolism at rest and during oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT).
