IHRSA Expresses Its Ardent Support of America's First-Ever National Physical Activity Plan and Accepts Role as Co-Chair of Implementation Sub-Committee
Date:5/3/2010

cifically, the Plan calls for policy, environmental and cultural changes to help all Americans enjoy the health benefits of physical activity. It provides a roadmap for change, addressing areas of concern from the education of health professionals to zoning laws, school policies, and workplace wellness programs. At least 12 states and a number of other countries have enacted physical activity plans, establishing best practices for making physical activity a routine part of daily life.

In part, the Plan is an answer to America’s alarming rates of adult and childhood obesity and decreasing levels of physical activity. Research has shown that physical activity and exercise can help prevent and treat obesity, diabetes, coronary heart disease, depression, bone disease, cancer and other diseases. If implemented, measures called for in the National Physical Activity Plan could significantly improve public health, cut health care costs, and reduce health disparities.

“It’s imperative that we counter the negative transformation that we have seen in America’s health over the last 30 years as a result of sedentary lifestyles,” says Moore. “Bringing about behavior change within an entire culture and society requires a sweeping initiative that approaches the problem from multiple angles. This Plan gives us a framework and is the springboard from which we can make lasting societal changes that increase movement in America.”

IHRSA will be co-chairing the National Implementation Team for Business and Industry with the American Heart Association (AHA) and the American Council on Exercise (ACE). They will be working closely with the National Coalition for Promoting Physical Activity (NCPPA), which is providing the leadership for the Plan’s implementation.

NPAP Background
The Plan was originally called for during a multi-organizational roundtable in 2006 convened by the American College of Sports
