Background: Vitamin D deficiency is known as a risk factor for various diseases and plays an important role in regulating systemic inflammation and thyroid function.
Objective: The study aimed to survey of the effectiveness of Pilates training and vitaminD intake on serum high-sensitivity C - reactive protein (hs-CRP) and Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) levels in overweight men.
Methods: This clinical trial was conducted on 50 overweight men aged 45-55 years. Subjects were selected through available sampling and randomly assigned into Pilates training, Pilates training with vitaminD, vitamiD and control groups. The Pilates training was performed for 8 weeks with the intensity of 50-75% of reserve heart rate, 3sessions/week. The supplement groups intake 50000IU vitaminD weekly. The levels of hs-CRP and TSH were measured at first and 8 weeks after interventions. The data were analyzed by paired t and one-way ANOVA tests (p˂0.05).
Findings: The results showed that 60%, 40% of the subjects had a deficiency and insufficiency vitamin D, respectively. Also, 8 weeks of Pilates training, vitamin D intake and the combined intervention resulted a significant decrease in hs-CRP and TSH (p<0.05). Also, the combined intervention was associated with  a stronger effect on the reduction of these variables compared with two other interventions (p˂0.05).
Conclusion: It seems that abnormal levels of vitamin D are common in overweight men and Vitamin D intake, Pilates training and combination interventions can improve thyroid function and systemic inflammation in overweight men with abnormal vitamin D status.  But combined intervention is associated with stronger effects.
