Purpose:

The study is a behavioral clinical trial of aerobic exercise to determine dose-response effects on risk for type 2 diabetes, fatness, fitness, blood cholesterol levels, and other cardiovascular risk factors in overweight elementary schoolchildren. The hypothesis is that the more exercise a child does, the more benefit he or she will gain in reducing the risk of diabetes and other cardiovascular diseases. An ancillary study examined effects on cognition and achievement.
