    Abstract

    Abstract
    Background: Several studies indicates that children’s aerobic capacity levels are predictors of the future risk of
    non-communicable diseases. Therefore, the aim of this study was to establish the proportion of subjects whose
    aerobic capacity is indicative of future cardiovascular risk in Indian-Nasa community from a low-income area in
    Cauca, Colombia.
    Methods: We performed a cross-sectional analysis of morphological component (height, weight, body mass
    index (BMI), waist circumference, triceps skinfold, subscapular skinfold, and body fat percent [BF%]), and the
    cardiorespiratory component (course-navette 20 m, shuttle run test and estimation of maximal oxygen consumption by
    indirect VO2max) from 576 participants (319 boys and 257 girls) aged 10 to 17.9 years, using the standardized
    FUPRECOL test battery.
    Results: We showed that the boys performed better than the girls in cardiorespiratory fitness. The proportion
    of subjects with an aerobic capacity indicative of future cardiovascular risk was 7.3%. By sex, 3.8% of boys and
    11.7% of girls (X2 p = 0.001) displayed an unhealthy aerobic capacity in this study.
    Conclusion: The findings of this study that provide the first data on aerobic capacity health for Colombian
    Nasa Indian children and adolescents aged 10–17.9 years. Although the known loss of aerobic capacity is a
    serious consequence of the future risk of non-communicable diseases, the deterioration of physical fitness
    deserves increased attention among indigenous population.
