    So... in conclusion if people do something that they planned to do you can record that they did do the thing that they planned to do and then did?

    Clearly money well spent, unless I'm missing something here.

    You could have had high expectancies or low expectancies, if your experiences were good, you were be more likely to stick to it.
    Quelle surprise!

    I would have liked to see a much greater emphasis on how creating a better experience could lead to more patients continuing doing sports after finishing cancer therapy.
    Because that is the answer to the overarching research question.
    *ETA: would include to find out why physical activity is benefiting some but not all and how to adapt to improve the former non-responders*

    Testing a proven theory on another patient cohort. Maybe a bachelor thesis?
