Summary The article presents information on a case study that was conducted to analyze whether measures of adiposity and cardiorespiratory fitness can correctly predict mortality in older adults. About 2603 persons in the age group of 60 were included in the study. The study found that persons with abdominal obesity had increased mortality, but this did not differ from those with normal waist circumference when adjusted for fitness.
