International physical activity questionnaire: 12-country reliability and validity.
TLDR
Considering the diverse samples in this study, IPAQ has reasonable measurement properties for monitoring population levels of physical activity among 18- to 65-yr-old adults in diverse settings.
Physical activity and public health: updated recommendation for adults from the American College of Sports Medicine and the American Heart Association.
TLDR
The purpose of the present report is to update and clarify the 1995 recommendations on the types and amounts of physical activity needed by healthy adults to improve and maintain health.
Correlates of adults' participation in physical activity: review and update.

There remains a need to better understand environmental influences and the factors that influence different types of PA and longitudinal and intervention studies will be required if causal relationships are to be inferred.
Social-cognitive and perceived environment influences associated with physical activity in older Australians.
TLDR
Identifying predictors of physical activity in older populations, particularly social support, facility access, and neighbourhood safety, can inform the development of policy and intervention strategies to promote the health of older people.
Toward a better understanding of the influences on physical activity: the role of determinants, correlates, causal variables, mediators, moderators, and confounders.
TLDR
It is proposed that the term "correlate" be used, instead of "determinant," to describe statistical associations or correlations between measured variables and physical activity.
Physical activity and sedentary behavior: a population-based study of barriers, enjoyment, and preference.
The associations of physical activity and sedentary behavior with barriers, enjoyment, and preferences were examined in a population-based mail survey of 1,332 adults. Respondents reporting high

The International Prevalence Study on Physical Activity: results from 20 countries
TLDR
This study demonstrated the feasibility of international PA surveillance, and showed that IPAQ is an acceptable surveillance instrument, at least within countries, if assessment methods are used consistently over time, trend data will inform countries about the success of their efforts to promote physical activity.
