|Physical Activity Obesity Children||Behavioral: Movi2 Program|
The prevalence of overweight in Spanish children in the puberty age is among the highest in the world and increasing quickly. The investigators recently evaluated an after-school program of recreational physical activity to control obesity and other cardiovascular risk factors in primary school children in Cuenca. This program, known as the Movi program, reduced adiposity, increased serum apolipoprotein (apo) A-I concentration and reduced apo B concentration over one-year period.
Though the intervention MOVI had great acceptance between the children and his families, and it demonstrated to be effective opposite to the obesity, his results were relatively modest. For it, our hypothesis of work, which justifies this new project, is that a major intensity of the intervention, and a major weekly duration extending this one to the weekend, it might improve the efficiency on the obesity.

|Experimental: Movi2 Program||
Behavioral: Movi2 Program
In the Movi2 program we will perform a recreational physical activity intervention during one year that include standardized recreative and non competitive activities conducted by sports instructors. It consisted of two 90-min after school sessions per week on school days and one 150-minute session on Saturday morning.
|No Intervention: Control|
- Skin-fold thickness [ Time Frame: 1 year ]Over 1 years, the Movi program will reduce the prevalence of excess weight in schoolchildren and improve other cardiovascular risk factors.
- Physical activity, physical fitness, sleep, and quality of life [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
