Abstract

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is considered the leading cause of premature death «75 years) in the United Kingdom (British Heart Foundation, 2010). It is widely accepted that the underlying mechanism to CVD, namely atherosclerosis, has its genesis in childhood (Berenson et aI., 1998). A number of risk factors have been identified for the early detection of CVD, many of which are thought to be influenced by physical activity (PA) (Strong et aI., 2005).
