Key: RASBP= Resting arterial systolic BP, RADBP= Resting arterial diastolic BP, RRPP= Resting rate pressure product, VO2max= oxygen uptake, FVC= Forced vital capacity, FEV1= Forced expiratory volume in one second, HbA1c = Glycosylated haemoglobin, *b = significantly different from baseline at p<0.05, *= significant difference across the week
