  1. Every trait and facet analyzed in the separate linear regression model; standardized beta-coefficients represented
  2. aStandardized self-reported MET-minutes – standardized accelerometer-assessed MET-minutes. M1 = model including sex and age as covariates. M2 = model including sex, age, education, BMI, diseases and intervention group. M2 for light physical activity controlled also with moderate-to-vigorous physical activity
  3. Bolded beta-coefficients remained statistically significant after Benjamini-Hochberg procedure.
  4. ***p < .001, **p < .01, *p < .05
