Objective Cardiopulmonary exercise testing is clinically used to estimate cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF). The relation to total body mass (TBM) leads to an underestimation of CRF in people with obesity and to inappropriate prognostic and therapeutic decisions. This study aimed to determine body composition‐derived bias in the estimation of CRF in people with obesity. Methods Two hundred eleven participants (58.8% women; mean BMI 35.7 kg/m2 [±6.94; 20.7‐58.6]) were clinically examined, and body composition (InBody720; InBody Co …
