Objectives : To determine whether self-reported exercise duration and intensity matched accelerometer data in sedentary endometrial cancer survivors and age-matched controls.

Methods : Participants were asked to wear an accelerometer and self-report exercise bouts, duration, and intensity for one week. Self-reported duration was compared with accelerometer data.

Results : Selfreported exercise-bout duration matched accelerometer duration 93 for survivors and 99 for controls. Self-reported exercisebout intensity matched accelerometer intensity 70 for survivors and 66 for controls. There were no significant differences between groups.

Conclusions : Sedentary endometrial cancer survivors and controls self-reported duration and intensity of physical activity consistent with accelerometer data.
