THE U.S. PHYSICAl ACTIvITY PlAN A CATAlYST To gET AMERICA MovINg
We know that to stay healthy, it’s key to incorporate movement into our lives. The National Physical Activity Guidelines recommend that youth accumulate 60 minutes – 30 minutes for adults – of physical activity into each day. Yet, until now, this has been a concept that is easier said than done.
Help is on the Horizon
The U.S. Physical Activity Plan (The Plan) provides a roadmap to get America moving. It addresses the behavioral, policy, educational, medical and physical infrastructure issues that affect how and why so many Americans are not moving. It unites professionals across sectors – in medicine and public health, transportation and urban planning, business, education and recreation – in a massive effort to collaborate and solve the problem. The Plan maps out a vision for a better America; one with more sidewalks, green spaces, trails and pathways for walkers and bicyclists; where doctors have clear, consistent messages that inspire, educate and change the behavior of their patients; where schools
offer more opportunities for kids to move and play along with structured time for physical
education. Most importantly, The Plan outlines clear strategies to get us there.
