"The principles of Exercise is Medicine center around the importance of physical activity," said Robert Sallis, M.D., FACSM. "Project ACES really fits well with the goals of Exercise is Medicine, and I think this will be a very valuable tool in our effort to reach out to children and their parents worldwide."

The 2008 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommend that children and adolescents aged 6 to 17 engage in 60 minutes or more of physical activity each day, including aerobic, muscle-strengthening and bone-strengthening exercises.

Whitehead, ACSM Executive Vice President. "Exercise is Medicine is the perfect venue for our involvement with Project ACES."
