LTPA

Seasonal variation in adult leisure-time physical activity:
Pivanik JM et al determined the effect of season on self-reported leisure-time physical activity (LTPA) behaviors of Michigan adults.
They found, weekly leisure-time energy expenditure averaged approximately 15-20% higher during spring and summer. Much of this difference was due to active respondents participating in a second activity during these seasons.
