Cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) is impaired in those with metabolic diseases and strongly predicts mortality. We found that adiposity, not glycaemic control or disease type, is the strongest predictor of low CRF in those with metabolic diseases. We discuss how adiposity and metabolic health may relate to outcomes in obesity.
