The objective of present study evaluated the effects of endurance training on serum concentration of leptin and insulin sensitivity in healthy obese Woman. For this purpose, 30 female overweight volunteer students (BMI ≥ 26) of Azad University Shahre Qods Campus were selected and randomly divided into two groups: endurance training group and control group. Training groups exercised for 12 weeks, three sessions a week with definite intensity and distance. Leptin, insulin, glucose, body weight, fat percentage, BMI And maximum oxygen consumption were measured both before and after the 12-week exercise. Using independent T-test, the results showed that endurance training had significant effect on leptin, insulin resistance index, body weight, fat percentage, BMI and maximum oxygen consumption (p ≤ 0.05). Our study finding demonstrated that endurance training leads to significant decrease of leptin levels and insulin resistance.
