From: A whole family-based physical activity promotion intervention: findings from the families reporting every step to health (FRESH) pilot randomised controlled trial

  Family arm (n = 25 adults) Pedometer-only arm (n = 21 adults)
a) The FRESH study…
 …was fun for my family and I. 3.2 ± 0.7 3.1 ± 0.5
 …encouraged my family and I to do more physical activity. 3.2 ± 0.7 2.7 ± 0.8
 …has led my family and I to do more physical activity than we did before FRESH. 3.0 ± 0.8 2.4 ± 0.8
 …has led my family and I to do more activities (other than physical activity) together than we did before FRESH. 2.6 ± 0.8 2.2 ± 0.5
 …has made my family and I more aware of the amount of physical activity we do. 3.6 ± 0.6 3.2 ± 0.7
 …is something my family and I would like to continue to be part of. 3.3 ± 0.9 3.2 ± 0.6
b) Regarding the step counter we gave out to log your steps, to what extent do you agree or disagree with the following:

 My child/children didn’t mind wearing it. 3.2 ± 1.0 3.2 ± 0.9
 It was easy to use. 3.1 ± 0.9 3.6 ± 0.5
 I thought it was reasonably reliable at counting steps. 2.8 ± 1.0 3.0 ± 0.6
 I used the memory feature to go back and look at the number steps my family and/or I took. 3.0 ± 1.1 2.0 ± 1.1
c) Regarding ‘family time’, to what extent do you agree or disagree with the following:
