The exercising group included 50 women who were selected from the health and fitness centres in Mangalore. The control group included 50 healthy non exercising women selected from the general population. In the present study, the anthropometric and autonomic parameters was significantly increased in the (P<0.05) in the non exerciser group when compared to the exercisers group.Further, serum lipid profile analysis showed a significant increase (P<0.05) in the serum LDL level and LDL: HDL ratio in the non exercisers group when compared to theexercisers group.
