  1. Data is presented as mean (standard deviation) for all continuous variables with the exception of moderate to vigorous intensity activity which is presented as median (interquartile range). P-value for one-way repeated measures ANOVA and Friedman’s Test. *mean difference between T0 and T1 p < 0.05; ** difference between T1 and T2 p < 0.05; §difference between T0 and T2 p < 0.05
