Stability of activity space footprint, size, and environmental features over six months

  • Published on July 4, 2019

Abstract As activity space measures are increasingly used to estimate exposure to environmental determinants of health, little is known about the stability of these measures over time. To test the stability of GPS-derived measures of activity-space footprint, size, and environmental features over time, we compared 14-day measures at baseline and ...


Physical Activity in Young Schoolchildren in After School Programs

  • Published on July 2, 2019

BACKGROUND After‐school programs (ASP) provide opportunities to influence children's physical activity (PA). However, little is known about the PA levels of the youngest schoolchildren. The aim of the study was to describe the level of PA intensity and sedentary time among first graders attending ASP in Norway, and to ...

Early life risk factors for childhood obesity—Does physical activity modify the associations? The MoBa cohort study

  • Published on June 20, 2019

Objectives High maternal pre‐pregnancy body mass index (BMI), high birth weight, and rapid infant weight gain are associated with increased risk of childhood obesity. We examined whether moderate‐to‐vigorous physical activity (MVPA) or vigorous physical activity (VPA) in 9‐ to 12‐year‐olds modified the associations between these early life ...



Effects of an Interdisciplinary Approach Integrating Mathematics and Physical Education on Mathematical Learning and Physical Activity Levels

  • Published on June 18, 2019

Purpose New ways of teaching have been under consideration over the last decade. Thus, this study aims to examine the effects of an interdisciplinary educational approach integrating physical education and mathematics on light and moderate–vigorous physical activity (PA), sedentary behavior, and learning subtraction. Method Forty-six first-grade students (Mage = 76.98 ± 3.74 months) ...
