Abstract

Evidence suggests that cardiovascular risk has its origins in early life, and its presence in youth is associated with adverse
cardiovascular health in later adulthood. Furthermore, childhood and adolescence are potential critical periods during the
lifecourse where lifestyle influencing factors can affect the development of cardiovascular disease This thesis sought to add
understanding by examining relationships between different aspects of physical fitness and obesity with a wide range of cardiometabolic
risk factors in participants, from the Western Australian Pregnancy (Raine) Cohort Study.
