Note: n = 66; Upper value = mean; lower value = standard deviation; *significant difference between genders: p < 0.05; PAL = physical activity level (a weighted mean MET.d-1 score); MVPA = minutes spent in moderate to vigorous physical activity across the entire day; locomotion = minutes spent in locomotion across the entire day.
