Abstract: Purpose Evaluation of the efects of an individualized home-based unsupervised aerobic training on body composition, physical and physiological parameters in female and male obese adults. Methods Two hundred and twenty obese adults (age 47.9 ± 12.4 years; BMI 38.0 ± 7.2 kg/m2 ) entered the 4-month training program. Body composition, physiological and functional capacities were assessed pre- and postintervention. All subjects were requested to perform unsupervised aerobic training with the intensity based on heart rate, walking speed and OMNI-RPE score corresponding to the individual ventilatory threshold for at least 5 days/week. Results After 4-month study period, 40% of patients completed the protocol, 24% had high compliance (HC) (exercise ≥ 3 days/week), while 16% had low compliance (LC) to exercise prescription (exercise signifcantly increased while heart rate during 6MWT was signifcantly lower after training. No signifcant diferences were found in LC group between pre- and post-intervention in all variables. Interestingly, gender does not infuence the efects of training. Conclusions Our results indicate that subjects, independent of gender, with high compliance to the aerobic training based on a new individualized method can achieve a signifcant reduction in weight loss and also an improvement in physical and physiological parameters. This innovative personalized prescription could be a valuable tool for exercise physiologist, endocrinologists, and nutritionists to approach and correct life style of obese subjects.
