  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. *Significant difference (P < 0.05) within group (Baseline versus 12 weeks)
  5. Significant difference (P < 0.05) between control group and pedometer group at 12 weeks is indicated by different letters.
