National Physical Activity Plan

NPAP-Logo-Final-June_2011-ap-icon
The National Physical Activity Plan is a comprehensive set of policies, programs, and initiatives that aim to increase physical activity in all segments of the American population. The Plan is the product of a private-public sector collaborative.

The National Physical Activity Plan:  A Cross Sector Initiative to Get America Moving! 

We know that incorporating movement into our daily lives is a key to staying healthy. The National Physical Activity Guidelines recommend that youth accumulate 60 minutes of physical activity into each day – 30 minutes for adults – yet up until now, this has been a concept easier said than done.

Help is now on the horizon to get and keep Americans moving.

The National Physical Activity Plan, the country’s first, provides a roadmap to get America moving. It is unique in that it is focused on making system – societal – changes through improved policies and practices that will transform the role of movement in our lives. It unites professionals across sectors – in medicine and public health, transportation and urban planning, business, education and recreation – to remove the barriers to physical activity and integrate it into our daily lives.
