Previous studies have demonstrated an association between physical inactivity and hypertension, but the methods used to assess activity have been subjective and imprecise. Recently methods have become available allowing measurement of energy expenditure in free-living populations. Our aim was to employ these methods to assess the independent association between energy expenditure, cardio-respiratory fitness and blood pressure.
