  1. * Significant difference between groups from pre- to post-intervention. P < 0.05.
  2. TC, total cholesterol; HDL-C, high density lipoprotein cholesterol; LDL-C, low density lipoprotein cholesterol; TG, triglycerides; CRP, C-Reactive Protein. Values are mean (SD).
  3. Body fat percentages are based upon data from 12 walkers and 12 controls.
  4. Blood lipids (TC, HDL-C, LDL-C, TG) are based upon data from 11 walkers and 9 controls.
  5. CRP levels are based upon data from 11 walkers and 8 controls
  6. All other variables are based upon data from 21 walkers and 12 controls.
