  1. a MVPA is moderate-to-vigorous physical activity b Total volume of physical activity is the sum of light, moderate, and vigorous physical activity minutes
  2. c NET-F VO2max is a measure of cardiorespiratory fitness assessed without lab-based exercise
  3. d EQ-5D is a standardized means of measuring health-related quality of life
