increased engagement in moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) for preschoolers. 19 , 20 Based on longitudinal evidence, higher levels of FMS early in life positively influenced physical activity later in life. 21 – 23 Research has shown that at-risk children, those from disadvantaged and/or low

Moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) is a modifiable health behavior that protects against many chronic diseases, including heart disease and cancer. 1 Adolescence is a critical window during which MVPA declines. 2 This decline occurs earlier among girls than among boys, 2 and nonwhite

minutes of structured physical activity daily, with daily bouts of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) due to the association with health ( NASPE, 2009 ). Active Start also highlights that preschoolers should develop FMS competence and have access to safe places to play and be active ( NASPE

The health benefits of engaging in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) are well established ( Garber et al., 2011 ; Warburton, Katzmarzyk, Rhodes, & Shephard, 2007 ). Despite these findings, an alarming 85% of North Americans are not meeting the recommended MVPA guidelines for public

. SAS macros were used to classify data into sedentary behavior (<25 counts/15 s), light physical activity (25–419 counts/15 s), and moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA; ≥420 counts/15 s) using accelerometer cut points developed by Pate et al. 51 Data were summarized at the day level for total

frailty ( Cruz-Jentoft et al., 2010 ). Current PA guidelines advise older adults to engage in at least 150 minutes per week in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) in bouts of 10 minutes or more, or in 75 minutes of vigorous PA per week, or a combination of both ( Department of Health, 2011

. Logistic regression models were used to examine the chances of moderate to vigorous physical activities (MVPA) being observed compared with sedentary or light activities (reference), according to gender, day of the week, and neighborhood income. Analyses were conducted in Microsoft Excel 2011 (Redmond, WA
