Understanding the prevalence of physical activity (PA) in children is important to the design of population-level health promotion initiatives. 1 It is recommended that children achieve a minimum of 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) on each day of the week 2 , 3 to

Motor competence is generally defined as an individual’s capability to complete a variety of motor tasks ( Robinson et al., 2015 ). Developing motor competence is important for current and future participation in physical activity ( Stodden et al., 2008 ). It has been suggested that motor

is that fatigue is triggered by a physiological decline in an aerobic capacity (VO 2 ) that commonly occurs as a consequence of an age-related loss of skeletal muscle mass ( Avlund, 2010 ). Specifically, with aging, the oxygen cost of activity consumes a larger proportion of an individual’s maximum

Undergraduate university instructors have historically used disability-related CSL to prepare adapted physical activity students for professional practice ( Connolly, 1994 ; DePauw, 2000 ; Hodge & Jansma, 1999

wearables, based on a 2018 survey of more than 2,000 health professionals from around the world, “wearable technology” was considered the leading fitness trend ( Thompson, 2019 ). Activity trackers, a subset of wearables, have quickly caught on for personal use, such as to promote changes in physical

TKA reliably reduces pain and improves self-reported functional performance postoperatively ( Bruun-Olsen, Heiberg, Wahl, & Mengshoel, 2013 ), yet physical activity levels are not typically increased after TKA ( Brandes, Ringling, Winter

Evidence regarding the role of neighborhood built characteristics in supporting physical activity continues to accumulate ( Barnett et al., 2017 ; Wasfi, Steinmetz-Wood, & Kestens, 2017 ) and inform urban planning and policy ( Calise, Heeren, DeJong, Dumith, & Kohl, 2013 ; Kärmeniemi, Lankila

In recent years, increasing attention has been paid to maximize functional ability to endorse aging in place and includes calls for further research on diverse populations ( Beard et al., 2016 ).
