BACKGROUND Although the trajectory of blood pressure (BP) with aging is well known, there is a lack of data on how cardiorespiratory fitness (hereafter referred to as fitness) affects age-associated changes in BP. OBJECTIVES The objective of the study was to investigate whether fitness alters the aging-BP trajectory. METHODS A cohort from the Aerobics Center Longitudinal Study totaling 13,953 men between 20 and 90 years of age who did not have hypertension, cardiovascular disease, or cancer… CONTINUE READING
