The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between body composition with blood lipids profile among active and sedentary girls within the age range of 10-14 years old in Bandar Abbas city. In this study, after determining level of bodily activity based on Beak physical activity questionnaire, 106 people were selected from among 780 junior high school volunteers, 55 of them were classified in sedentary group and 51 were in the active group according to the same questionnaire. First, height, weight, waist circumference and hip circumference were measured in order to calculate body mass index and pattern of fat distribution. Then, in order to investigate blood factors of the study, fasting blood samples were taken from the participants. To analyze the data, Pearson correlation coefficient was used to investigate the relationship between the variables and t-test was also used to perform within-group comparisons (P<0.05). The results showed that there was a significant relationship between body mass index and fat distribution pattern; however, no significant difference was observed between low and high density lipoprotein, triglyceride and total cholesterol in the two groups. Based on the results obtained from this study, a significant relationship was found between body mass index, pattern of fat distribution and blood lipids which were among risk factors of cardiac diseases; however, no difference was found between active and sedentary participants based on the level of physical activity.
