Abstract Structured exergaming with prescribed moderate in-tensity physical activity has reduced adiposity among adolescents.The extent to which adolescents reduce adiposity when allowed toself-select intensity level is not known. he objective of the study was to examine the influence ofexergaming on adolescent girls’ body composition and cardiovascularrisk factors.

Metodology This randomized controlled trial assigned 41 overweightand obese girls aged 14 to 18 years to group-based dance exergaming(36 h over 3 months) or to a self-directed care control condition. Bodysize and composition were measured by anthropometry, dual-energyX-ray absorptiometry [%fat and bone mineral density {BMD}] and mag-netic resonance imaging. Cardiovascular risk factors included bloodpressure, cholesterol, triglycerides, glucose and insulin

Findings Exergaming reduced body fat and increased BMDamong those adolescent girls who adhered. Further research is re-quired before exergami ng is recommended in clinical settings. Attrition was 5%. Using analysis of covariance controlling forbaseline value, age and race, there were no significant condition differ-ences. Per protocol (attended >75%), the intervention group signifi-cantly decreased abdominal subcutaneous adiposity and increasedtrunk and spine BMD (ps 2600 steps/session),the intervention group significantly decreased leg %fat and decreasedabdominal subcutaneous and total adiposity (ps
