pertinent to B-Well. 29 We downloaded minute-by-minute step frequency data weekly and counted MVPA minutes by setting an intensity threshold for a minute to qualify as activity. A cutoff of 100 steps per minute was used for moderate physical activity, 30 , 31 and vigorous physical activity was defined as

International Physical Activity Questionnaire 3 and the Active Australia Physical Activity Survey 4 ) rely on estimated MET values for groups of activities to estimate MET·minutes per week spent in moderate and vigorous physical activity. Similarly, in studies that use objective methods, time spent in

found in self-reported physical activity data. Interestingly, Hispanic/Latina women self-reported higher levels of moderate and vigorous physical activity than African American; however, accelerometry demonstrated African American women actually had significantly higher levels of MVPA. When comparing

similar aged children (9–17 y), using uniaxial accelerometry. Advancing previous research that only reported total counts, 6 Aznar et al 12 utilized Evenson 15 cut points to find that 6- to 17-year-old children with CF engaged in significantly less MVPA and vigorous physical activity (VPA), but

sedentary; 66.5% were aged ≥ 70 years; 64.5% were women; and 52.1% were classified with BMI ≥ 28 kg/m 2 . The mean age was 73.9 years (95%CI: 73.2 to 74.6). The average time spent in moderate and vigorous physical activity was 9.73 min per day (95%CI: 8.27 to 11.19). The average sedentary time per day was

adjusted for body mass index. Table  4 subdivides participants’ amount of MVPA (≥3 METs) into 2 categories: moderate physical activity (3−6 METs) and vigorous physical activity (>6 METs). A slightly negative relationship between amount of moderate physical activity (3−6 METs) and presence of persistent
