Obesity has gripped both the developed and the developing countries and has a deleterious impact on health. Obesity sluggish the body movement and affects routine physical activities. Exercise improves body compositions. Hence the study was undertaken to check the influence of planned exercise on the BMI of obese individuals. Objective: To evaluate the effect of 12 weeks of specific exercise regime programme on the BMI of experimental and control group obese subjects. Material and Methods: 120 healthy obese subjects (n=60 male and n= 60 female) were recruited in study; experimental group [30 male +30 female] were exposed to 12 weeks of supervised exercise regime training programme; whereas subjects of control group [30 male +30 female] did not perform any functional gym training. Pre and Post test data was collected and T-test and two way ANOVA with post-hoc analysis were applied for analyzing differences between experimental and control group. Influences of experimental protocol as well as of gender were evaluated during the analysis keeping the level of significance at p< 0.05. Results: Experimental group of both gender showed statistical significant changes in BMI at the end of 12 weeks of supervised physical training. In terms of percentage changes of individual participant’s; subjects of experimental groups showed a negative individual percentage changes with low pre-test BMI; while, negative changes were highly prominent particularly in the female experimental group. Result of ANOVA had shown significant alterations in the Post- Test study of BMI, whereas gender influence was observed between pre and the post-test for the BMI respectively. Conclusion: Meticulously designed exercise protocol could be an important tool to fight against obesity by keeping an check on BMI.
