  1. Values are mean ± standard error (SE)
  2. P values based on linear mixed model analysis within each group (men and women). Values within each column with different superscript letter (a, b) are significantly different (p <  0.05)
  3. As explained in the results section, exercise duration and intensity were measured at weeks 1 and 11 and month 11 to represent changes over time (instead of months 0, 3 and 12) to minimize missing values
