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.
