ABSTRACT
In the recent decades, obesity and overweight, important risk factors for the cardiovascular disease development, had a significant increase being the sedentarism one of the most important causes. Considering it, this study aims at analysing the prevalence of obesity and hypertension in users of CEAFiR, besides correlating BMI with SBP and DBP. For that, weight and height were collected to calculate BMI and BP of 163 subjects (114 women and 49 men) whose average age was 53.0 ± 16.1 years old. The results showed that 30.1% were classified as obese and 43.6% as overweight. Regarding to HA, 22,7% were classified in 1, 2 or 3 stages of hypertension and 7.4% as isolated systolic hypertension. Therefore, 73,7% were classified as overweight and 30.1% with hypertension. This result reinforces the importance of preventional programs aiming at orient the population, promoting positive changes in lifestyle.
