  3. MVPA categories are defined as: No MVPA: ≥ 0 but < 1 min of moderate, and ≥ 0 but < 1 min of vigorous activity on average per week. Low MVPA: ≥ 1 but < 150 min of moderate or ≥ 1 but < 75 min of vigorous; or ≥ 1 but < 150 min of moderate/vigorous activity on average per week. Moderate MVPA: ≥ 150 min but < 300 min of moderate, or ≥ 75 min but < 150 of vigorous; or ≥ 150 but < 300 min of moderate/vigorous activity on average per week. High MVPA: ≥ 300 min of moderate, or ≥ 150 min of vigorous, or ≥ 300 min of moderate/vigorous activity on average per week [derived from total min per day with 1535–3961 counts per minute (cpm) for moderate activity, and ≥ 3962 cpm for vigorous activity; and ≥ 1535 cpm for moderate/vigorous activity- applies to all categories]
