Abstract The aim of this study was to examine effect of fatigue levels on functional mobility and balance in middle-aged obese females. The study included 98 healthy females aged 40-60 years with BMI ≥ 30 kg/m2. Self-perceived fatigue was evaluated with a self-administered questionnaire, the Checklist of Individual Strength in Turkish (CIS-T), on which 62.3% of the study subjects identified themselves as fatigued. The body weight and BMI values of fatigued subjects were found to be higher than those of the non-fatigue group (p<0.05). The reported exercise habits of the fatigue group were found to be significantly lower than their non-fatigued peers (p<0.05). The level of functional mobility (Timed Up and Go Test), static balance (One-Legged Stance Test with Eyes Open) and dynamic balance (Functional Reach Test and the 3-meter Timed Tandem Walk Test) were measured, and statistically significant differences were found between fatigue and non-fatigue groups on all of them (p<0.05). In addition, correlations were found between the sub-parameters of the CIS-T scale and the functional tests at
