  1. a Aerobic minutes of ambulatory activity are recorded by the Omron HJ-720-ITC pedometer. According to the criteria, data are recorded when an individual continuously engages in continuous movement such as walking, jogging, or running at a rate of 60+ steps per minute, involves no more than a 60-second pause, and lasts at least 10 minutes in duration.
  2. b Satisfaction scores are based on a 5-item Likert scale where 5 = strongly agree and 1 = strongly disagree.
