, type 2 diabetes, functional disability, and premature death. 1 Skeletal muscle accounts for 40% of total body mass and is the main determinant of energy expenditure among sedentary individuals. Although regular physical activity is fundamental for preserving skeletal muscle mass, strength and function

in AI children and adults were examined, including the novel obesity risk factors stress and sleep. We hypothesized an inverse relationship between body mass index (BMI), adult age, screen time, and stress (adults only) with PA in adults and children. We also hypothesized that sleep would have a

cardiopulmonary exercise test on a treadmill (Life Fitness 9700HR; Life Fitness, Schiller Park, IL, USA). All subjects performed the test in the morning. Weight in kg was measured using a digital scale and height (in meters) were used to calculate body mass index (BMI) in kg/m 2 . Medical evaluation was performed
