  • Our aim was to determine the normative reference values ofcardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) and to establish the proportion of subjects with low CRFsuggestive of future cardio-metabolic risk.
  • Our aim was to determine the normative reference values ofcardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) and to establish the proportion of subjects with low CRFsuggestive of future cardio-metabolic risk.Methods: A total of 7244 children and adolescents attending public schools in Bogota,Colombia (55.7% girls; age range of 9–17.9 years). We expressed CRF performance asthe number of shuttle-runs completed and the estimated peak oxygen consumption(VO2peak) and smoothed percentile curves were calculated. In addition, we also presentthe prevalence of low CRF after applying a previously suggested correction factor, toaccount for the impact of Bogota’s altitude (2,625 meters over sea level) on CRFassessment and we calculated the number of participants who fell below health-relatedFITNESSGRAM cut-points for low CRF.
