  1. Values are represented as mean ± s.e.m
  2. P-values represent the between group comparison of the control vs pedometer group at week 12.
  3. There were no significant differences at baseline between groups.
  4. There were no significant differences between groups at 12 weeks.
  5. There were no significant within group differences.
