  • Values were adjusted for smoking and alcohol drinking and mutually adjusted.

  • *AORs and 95% CIs are shown for metabolic syndrome after the physical fitness programme, comparing between the 2011 baseline results and the physical fitness test performance.

  • AOR, adjusted OR; ; BMI, body mass index.
