    Abstract

    Physical Activity (PA) is associated with better health levels and cardiopulmonary fitness is recognized as one of the best indicators of physical performance, which can be related with some items of Quality of Life (QoL). The aim of this study was to analyze the relationship between the Quality of Life (QoL) and cardiorespiratory fitness (Vo2 Max) of healthy workers, measured with the Short-Form Health Survey SF36 and incremental cardiopulmonary test. Sample was formed by 250 healthy workers (90 men, mean age 37.25 and 160 female, mean age 37.91). Analyzing the results, Vo2’s Mean values were higher in men (39.00 ml/kg/min SD 7.56) than in women (29.70 ml/kg/min SD 5.73) with significant differences (P<0.01). We found differences in all dimensions of SF36 indicating that men had higher scores than women, but significant differences between both are present only in Physical Functioning (P
