The changes in insulin resistance and metabolic health among young, middle aged, and older adults meeting the current aerobic exercise training recommendations.

The overall purpose of this research is to evaluate the difference the national cardiorespiratory exercise recommendations have on metabolic and cardiovascular health over 6 weeks in previously sedentary young, middle aged, and older adults matched for obesity. The participants will complete moderate intensity exercise for 30 minutes per day, 5 days per week for 6 weeks. Pre- and post-intervention testing will be completed to evaluate changes in metabolic and cardiovascular health.

For this study, you will be asked to complete pre-intervention and post-intervention testing. At pre- and post-intervention testing, researchers will measure your height, weight, body circumferences, lean mass, fat mass, resting heart rate, resting blood pressure, and fitness level. Researchers will also do a fasted blood draw and will measure your resting metabolic rate. You will also be asked to complete questionnaires on your quality of life, physical activity habits, physical activity enjoyment, and diet. During the intervention you will exercise for 30 minutes per day, 5 days per week, for 6 weeks at moderate intensity on a treadmill.
