Obesity is an important condition that has been on the agenda of the world for the last 20 years. If the necessary precautions are not taken, it is expected that a large proportion of our population will be obese in the coming years. Many factors affect obesity such as nutritional habits, lack of physical activity, leisure time habits, age, gender, education, genetic factors, urban life, rising our living standards, sports culture, and industrial food. One of the important factors in the fight against obesity is physical activity.
