Crude model is unadjusted. Adjusted model includes age, BMI, TC, HDL-C, TG, fasting glucose, AUCINS, HRREST, and VO2peak.

Abbreviations: AUCINS, area under the curve for insulin; BMI, body mass index; CRP, C-reactive protein; HDL-C, high density lipoprotein cholesterol; logCRP, logarithmic transformation of CRP values; HRREST, resting heart rate; TC, total cholesterol; TG, triglycerides; VO2max, maximal oxygen consumption; WBCs, white blood cells.
