From: The development and feasibility of a randomised family-based physical activity promotion intervention: the Families Reporting Every Step to Health (FRESH) study

  Overall Family arm (n = 8 adults) Child-only arm (n = 6 adults)
a) The FRESH study…
 …was fun for my family and I. 4.2 ± 0.8 4.3 ± 0.7 4.2 ± 1.0
 …encouraged my family and I to do more physical activity. 3.9 ± 0.8 4.0 ± 0.6 3.8 ± 1.0
 …has led my family and I to do more physical activity than we did before FRESH. 3.5 ± 1.0 3.6 ± 0.7 3.2 ± 1.3
 …has led my family and I to do more activities (other than physical activity) together than we did before FRESH. 3.4 ± 0.7 3.3 ± 0.7 3.5 ± 0.8
 …has made my family and I more aware of the amount of physical activity we do. 4.6 ± 0.5 4.7 ± 0.5 4.6 ± 0.5
 …is something my family and I would like to continue to be part of. 3.8 ± 1.3 4.3 ± 0.8 3.4 ± 1.5
