Given the importance of the amount of visceral fat for the metabolic pathology, we evaluated the body composition in trained and untrained. The trained subjects taken from the study came from the Armony Club, Iași, România, the male ones being bodybuilders and the female ones aerobics practitioner. The results showed a lower percentage of visceral fat/body fat ratio in untrained men than in untrained men (control group), but not in the case of trained versus untrained women. The percentage of visceral fat of female subjects was significantly higher in the case of the untrained group (control). The reasons for the fact that the percentage of visceral fat is relatively higher in trained men may be represented by cortisol and testosterone discharges during physical exertion.
