physical activity for accruing the benefits associated with this health behavior ( Motl, Sebastiao, et al., 2016 ). We are aware of one study that reported older adults with MS engaged in less moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) and more sedentary behavior than middle-aged and young adults with

. Therefore, the current investigation aimed to analyze the longitudinal association between academic performance and moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA), vigorous physical activity (VPA), and SED time in a 3-year longitudinal study. A secondary aim was to determine whether MVPA and VPA were

children accumulate at least 1 h of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) daily ( Tremblay et al., 2012 ). These recommendations go on to explain that children can accumulate PA intermittently throughout the day, and can include light intensity activities such as standing, moving around, and active

ownership by adults (as a proxy indicator of SES) and objectively measured moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) among 5 countries at different HDI levels and found that those without cars accumulated more MVPA, independent of the HDI of the country. It is possible that children’s physical activity

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

. 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
