Background: Modern day sedentary lifestyle habits adopted by the masses have led to an increased incidence of reduced health. Obesity is becoming steadily more common on a global scale. Purpose: The purpose of this study has been to investigate the correlation on body composition and maximum oxygen consumption (VO2 max) in adult women and men between the ages of 40-55, based on the “Aktiv i Sør” project. Method: 109 sedentary participants (73 women and 36 men) between 40-55 years of age took part in the study. The participant’s body composition was measured using skinfold caliper, waist/hip ratio, InBody 720. VO2 max was measured using modified Balke protocol. Result: Average fat percentage measured by InBody 720 in men (n=36) was 28,3±7,6%, and 36,6±7,6% in women (n=73). Fat percentage measured by skinfold was in averaged 29,3±7,6% in men (n=35), and 37,4±6,5% in women (n=73). VO2 max in men was on average 33,7±5,9ml.kgˉ¹.minˉ¹, and 28,4±4,1ml.kgˉ¹.minˉ¹ in women. For men the correlation between VO2maks and body fat percentage skinfold, and between VO2maks and body fat percentage InBody 720 was good negative correlation, with (r= -0,66, p<0,000 and r= -0,70, p<0,000) respectively. The correlation between VO2 max and body fat percentage skinfold was moderate negative correlation (r= -0,57, p<0,000), and good negative correlation (r= -0,73, p<0,000) between VO2 max and body fat percentage InBody 720 in women. Conclusion: The correlation between body fat percentage InBody 720 and VO2 max was good negatively correlated in both men and women. The correlation between body fat percentage skinfold and VO2 max had a good negative correlation in men, and was moderate negative correlation in women between the ages of 40-55, based on the “Aktiv i Sør” project.
