  • Data are % (95% CI) unless otherwise indicated.

  • *LTPA: low <10 MET-h/week; moderate 10–40 MET-h/week, and high >40 MET-h/week. Intensity: low (no self-reported subjective shortness of breath and no sweating), moderate (a moderate degree of self-reported subjective shortness of breath and sweating), and high (a high degree of subjective shortness of breath and sweating). Frequency: low fewer than one session/week, moderate one to two sessions/week, and high more than two sessions/week. Duration: low ≤30 min/session, moderate 31–60 min/session, and high >60 min/session.
