OBJECTIVE: To study the effect of a moderate, aerobic physical exercise program on insulin resistance and its accompanying metabolic changes in a group of healthy, middle-age, nonobese subjects, without modifying oxygen consumption and body weight. DESIGN: The inclusion of subjects was carried out among volunteers from the health personnel of our center, who complied with the inclusion criteria. PARTICIPANTS: Twelve subjects (age 30-60 years, 5 females), nonsmokers, body mass index (BMI) <27 kg/m2 and fasting plasma glucose <6.1 mmol/L. INTERVENTIONS: Insulin resistance was assessed using the Bergmann minimal model modified with insulin, and basal and maximum metabolic rate were measured with standard methods. All subjects completed a 2-month program of aerobic exercise using the American College of Sports Medicine guidelines, consisting of aerobic exercise of moderate, regular, and continual intensity (3 times per week), with a duration of 45 to 50 minutes per session. RESULTS: Following controlled exercise, no significant differences in BMI, waist-hip ratio, blood pressure, lipids, free fatty acids, and leptin plasma values were observed. Plasma glucose and insulin values decreased significantly (-0.37 mmol/L and -16.5 pmol/L, respectively). Insulin sensitivity showed an increase of 2.1 x 10(-4) mU L(-1) min(-1) (P = 0.001). Basal and maximum metabolic rate showed no significant differences after the exercise program. CONCLUSIONS: Moderate aerobic exercise increases insulin sensitivity in nonobese, nondiabetic subjects in the absence of significant changes in weight, BMI, waist-hip ratio, lipid profile, and oxygen consumption.
