Asthma is the most common chronic illness in children and is independently impacted by obesity and by fitness. The National Youth Fitness Survey collected data on aerobic fitness, body composition, and health outcomes in children 6 to 11 years old. The goal of this study is to test hypotheses regarding relationships between asthma, aerobic fitness, and sedentary time in this uniquely studied cohort of young children.
