Purpose: to analyze the correlation between quality of life and burden of disease with physical fitness in women with chronic venous disease (CVD). Methods: this is a descriptive correlational study comprised of 47 women that present symptoms of CVD. Following recruitment, patients visited the laboratory to answer the Aberdeen Varicose Vein and sociodemographic questionnaires. In the second visit, anthropometric measurements and familiarization were carried out. Subsequently, physical fitness measured endurance, strength, flexibility, agility and dynamic balance, and calf endurance were performed. Multiple linear regression analyzed and adjusted the data for age, body mass index, and income. Results: in the endurance test, a correlation was found for pain and dysfunction in model 3 (p = 0.032). In the upper- and lower-body strength test, a correlation was found for pain and dysfunction in the crude analysis and after adjustments (p<0.05) as well as for the overall domain (p<0.05). In the upper-body flexibility test, the crude, model 1, model 2, and model 3 presented significant correlations with pain and dysfunction (p<0.05). For the agility and dynamic balance test, only for model 1, model 2, and model 3 presented a correlation with pain and dysfunction and overall domains (p<0.05). In the calf endurance test, a correlation was found for pain and dysfunction in model 3 (p = 0.002). Conclusion: quality of life and burden of disease are correlated to physical fitness. Pain and dysfunction and overall domains are the most related to physical fitness, presenting correlation with endurance, strength, and agility and dynamic balance.
