Healthy People 2010: Physical Activity and Fitness. President's Councilon Physical Fitness and Sports Research Digest, Series 3, No. 13 by Christine G Spain( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Department of Health and Human Services, working with other governmental agencies, professional groups, and individuals, has identified general areas of concern for the nation's health. This report explains how physical activity and fitness have been prominent aspects of Healthy People 2010 (hp2010), the national health promotion and disease prevention effort. The two broad goals of hp2010 are to increase the years and quality of healthy life and eliminate health disparities. Of the 13 hp2000 physical activity and fitness objectives, only the worksite fitness programs goal has been met, though 4 objectives show solid gains, indicating that the message about increased physical activity is reaching some segments of the population. Physical activity is listed in HP2010's top 10 health indicators. It also has an effect on other indicators, and it can provide an attractive alternative to other indicators. Hp2010 objectives offer opportunities to ensure that physical activity and fitness become part of regular healthy behavioral patterns. Hp2010 objectives focus on: physical activity in adults; muscular strength/endurance and flexibility; physical activity in children and adolescents; and access. This report details each objective.
