the use of rigorous, objective measurements of child activity behaviors and direct observations of the FCCH environment. Measuring PA and SBs across 3 days may not fully represent usual behavior, although evidence suggests that it may be sufficient to capture in-school PA ( 1 ). In addition, this

Although both terms are closely related, they should not be treated as synonyms. 7 PA is defined as any body movement performed by muscle action that increases energy expenditure. 8 PA can be quantified by intensity, duration, or frequency, using subjective or objective measurements. Moreover, PA volume

associated with objective measurement of physical activity (using accelerometers) among individuals with a lower-limb amputation who are using a prosthesis. We hypothesized that self-report measures assessing functional mobility, balance confidence, and prosthetic use would each independently help to explain

effects of gender and psychosocial factors on changes in PA over time, with a representative sample of children and objectively measured PA. This analysis used data from a prospective cohort study of changes in PA with objective measurement of PA to consider gender differences in changes in PA in a

In a study that did use objective weather measurements in the context of a physical activity intervention, Chan et al 16

levels of MVPA during adolescence is important. Objective measurements of body size ( 2 , 21 , 23 , 31 ) and subjective perceptions of body size ( 15 , 28 , 32 , 33 ) have been consistent targets in studies exploring barriers to physical activity. For example, studies have found that objectively
