Abstract/Summary Regular physical activity is an important component of healthy lifestyle providing many beneficial effects such as improving physical fitness, enhancing muscular strength, increasing endurance, promoting well-being and protecting against cardiovascular diseases, cancer or diabetes. Not lesser important is the role of exercise in the prevention and treatment of overweight and obesity. An important element in etiology of obesity seems to be inability to oxidize lipids. We rewieved factors influencing fat oxidation during physical activity such as exercise intensity aimed to enhance its effect on overweight or obese people. Many studies support the use of exercise as an ideal weight loss strategy, mainly in combination with dietary restriction. Some exercise programs fail to prove significant weight loss changes what may be caused by low adherence to the training. New, interesting, non-stereotype and individualized exercise programs such as dance should be found to improve adherence to the regular physical activity and consequently to promote general health.
