Designed to Move: A Physical Action Agenda

on

in General as ACSM, Nike, Sedentarism

 

More than 70 experts from a wide range of disciplines contributed to the development of the fact base and this framework. R2P is now the 1st new champion member since DTM's inception. We join Nike, ACSM, Governments from around the world & other leaders who are working to stem the tide of the "inactivity crisis".

Just a few generations ago, physical activity was an integral part of daily life. In the name of progress, we've now chipped away at it so thoroughly that physical inactivity actually seems normal.

In less than two generations, physical activity has dropped by 20% in the U.K. and 32% in the U.S. In China, the drop is 45% in less than one generation. Vehicles, machines and technology now do our moving for us. What we do in our leisure time doesn't come close to making up for what we've lost.
