Brief Summary:
The aim of the study is to 1) delineate the molecular mechanisms behind the large variation in insulin sensitivity among apparently healthy subjects and to 2) establish the dose-response relationship between physical training and a) metabolic health, b) appetite and c) cultural health.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change from baseline in insulin sensitivity at 12 weeks [ Time Frame: At baseline and 12 weeks ]
    As measured by a hyperinsulinemic, isoglycemic clamp combined with skeletal muscle and adipose tissue biopsies as well as low-dose PET/CT.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change from baseline in body composition af 2, 6 and 12 weeks [ Time Frame: At baseline, 2, 6 and 12 weeks ]
    As measured by DEXA- and MRI-scanning.

  2. Change from baseline in appetite at 12 weeks [ Time Frame: At baseline and 12 weeks ]
    As measured by food records, controlled diets, meal tests and appetite hormones

  3. Motivational factors for exercise [ Time Frame: During and for up to 1½ year after the intervention ]
    Ethnographic field work

  4. Diameter of t-tubuli in skeletal muscle [ Time Frame: At baseline ]
    As measured in skeletal muscle biopsies by electron and confocal microscopy
