A Preliminary Study to Determine Instrument Responsiveness to Change with a Walking Program: Physical Activity Logs versus Pedometers.
Tudor-Locke, Catrine
Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, v72 n3 p288-92 Sep 2001
Evaluated the effectiveness of a physical activity log and a pedometer with respect to responsiveness to change in a walking program. Obese and sedentary adults monitored their physical activity over time using both methods concurrently. The log did not detect increases in physical activity that were detected by pedometer. The pedometer was simple to use and detected increased physical activity. (SM)
