Figure 1

Participants identified as meeting physical activity recommendations by a subjective and an objective assessment. Participants meeting moderate-to-vigorous activity (MVPA) using two different modalities (PAR = physical activity record, SWA = SenseWear armband) in minutes per week, compared to actual number of participants meeting the reference standard (3, 30 minute volitional sessions per week). The horizontal line demonstrates the cut-off of MVPA minutes indicated by each modality required to classify the same number of exercisers identified by the reference standard. Participants identified at these cut-offs were not necessarily the same individual participants identified by the reference standard.
