The goal of this thesis was to gain insights in the level of physical fitness, physical activity and sedentary behavior in the first year after a-SAH. Objective measures of fitness, activity and sedentary behavior were collected at six and twelve months post a-SAH and compared to that of sex and age-matched controls. Follow-up was applied to study changes in fitness, activity and sedentary behavior over time. Furthermore, we explored whether physical deconditioning (i.e. low fitness and inactive and sedentary lifestyles) plays a role in fatigue, and whether we could identify subgroups at risk of poor outcomes.
