Abstract: Research evidence has shaved a connection between central adiposity and an increased risk of metabolic disorders, morbidity, and mortality. Waist circumference IWCI has been identified as the best predictor 01 Metabolic Syndrome (Mets) in children and adolescents. The purposes of this study were: 1) to determine if there were significant differences between the subjects who presented the WC risk factor (WCrf) and those without that risk factor (non-WCrf) for all the other Mets components and physical fitness parameters, in boys and girls across 3 age groups (6-9, 10-11, and 12-14 year-olds); 2) to estimate the risk in Wcrf subjects of having MetS and being considered unfit.
