Visfatin is an adipocytokine that release from adipocytes. It is unknown whether training also influences concentrations of visfatin. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of 12 weeks of aerobic training on visfatin levels in obese women. Thirty two obese women (age = 37.8 ± 13.2 years, body mass index = of 39.4 ± 6.4 kg/m2 .) volunteered to participate in a 12-wk exercise program. They were randomly assigned to either a training (n = 16) or control (n = 14) group. The training group exercised for 70 minutes per session, 3 days per week during the 12 week training program. The control group was asked to maintain their normal daily activities. Samples were obtained before and at the end of training program. We use t. paire and independent, test for data analyzes. Exercise training resulted in a decrease in body weight (p < 0.05), percent body fat (% fat) and BMI (p < 0.05), fasting glucose level and visfatin concentration decreased but wasn’t significant (p > 0.05). In conclusion, the 12 week aerobic training program used in this study was very effective for producing significant benefits to body composition but didn’t significant lowering visfatin levels in these obese women.
