Table 4 Impact of motivational profiles on Weekly MVPA over a one-month period (N = 165)

From: Motivational profiles, accelerometer-derived physical activity, and acute diabetes-related symptoms in adults with type 2 diabetes

  1. Note. Results of an ANOVA showed that sex was significantly associated with Weekly MVPA while results of a correlational analysis showed that BMI was also related to this same outcome. Therefore, the ANCOVA was controlling for sex and BMI. Bootstrapping procedures with a sample size of 3000 was used following Chernick’s (2007) recommendations. Weekly MVPA; over the entire period the accelerometer was worn, average number of minutes spent practicing MVPA per week
