Objectives Physical activity and cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) are relevant modifiers of cardiovascular risk. Their independent effects on arterial stiffness have not been assessed in people with obesity. This study aimed to assess the independent effects of light (LPA) and moderate‐to‐vigorous (MVPA) physical activity and CRF on Pulse wave velocity (PWV). Methods Brachial‐ankle PWV (baPWV) was measured cross‐sectionally in 55 subjects (43.0±13.8 years; 66% women) with moderate cardiovascular risk. Body composition was …
