Interventions which reduce anxiety associated with PA should be implemented, and it is a basic necessity to involve overweight children in programs like FITOC. Overweight and obese children may benefit from PA-focused trials that are designed to encourage daily PA.
For our study we chose children 8-11 years old, because this age group takes part in the intervention trail FITOC. The nonoverweight children were recruited in this age group too.
