Educational brochure about physical activity provided.
Behavioral: Physical Activity Educational Materials
A brochure was provided to participants about the health benefits of physical activity and physical activity recommendations
A pedometer was provided in addition to educational materials.
A pedometer was provided to participants in addition to educational materials about the health benefits of physical activity.
- Minutes spent in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) [ Time Frame: The primary outcome is measured at baseline and after a 7-day intervention period (1 week) ]A GT3X accelerometer is used to monitor each participants physical activity levels for seven consecutive days at baseline and again following a 7-day intervention period. The amount of time per day spent above a threshold of 2200 accelerometer counts/min is averaged over at least three days as the measure of MVPA.
