(2008) measured physical activity using a validated leisure score index on the GLTEQ by using three questions to obtain the frequency of mild, moderate, and strenuous exercise a person engages in for 15 minutes during a typical week.
100 college students volunteered to take part in the online TPB model questions and GLTEQ survey during the summer session in 2016.
To measure current levels of exercise activity, the Godin Leisure-Time Exercise Questionnaire (GLTEQ) was used (27).
Bivariate, two-tailed Pearson Product Moment Correlations analyses were run for the variables of age, body mass index, waist-to-hip ratio, comorbidity index, current exercise activity (GLTEQ), and SCT variables (exercise self-efficacy, barriers to self-efficacy, social support, and modeling).Significance was set at a p-value less than 0.05.
She also reported averaging 397.5 minutes per week of light and moderate PA prior to her diagnosis of ESRD based on her GLTEQ responses.
Persons with MS also reported fewer moderate and vigorous activity bouts, in addition to lower total leisure time exercise scores via the GLTEQ, than CON (all p < 0.05).
Bouts of moderate intensity activity, as identified by the GLTEQ, were not significantly related to any measures of physical performance in either group, while GLTEQ light bouts were related to SEBT composite score (r = -0.57) in persons with MS only.
Reliability for the GLTEQ has been demonstrated with a wide age-range via test-retest administrations and significant associations with lengthier and more detailed exercise questionnaires.
The GLTEQ asked participants to report the number of times that they engaged in strenuous, moderate, and mild exercise for 15 or more minutes in a typical week.
The GLTEQ was modified to also assess duration of physical activity by asking participants how long (minutes), on average, did he or she participate in strenuous, moderate, and mild exercise during a typical week.
The dependent variables were the GLTEQ scale scores, EMI-2 subscale scores, and Exercise Self-Efficacy scale scores.
The GLTEQ [15] is self-administered measure of usual physical activity, and although it contains two-parts, we only included the first part in this study on the basis of previous research [17-18].
