Poor cardiovascular fitness has been implicated as a possible mechanism for obesity- related cognitive decline, though no study has examined whether BMI is associated with poorer cognitive function in persons with excellent fitness levels.

Thus, fifteen rugby players male aged 24.7 ± 0.9 voluntarily participated in this study, whose body mass index (BMI) was greater than 30.
