An active lifestyle assists in the prevention of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, some cancers, and physical injuries. Sedentary behaviour carries many dangers and is responsible for an estimated two million deaths per year. Considering what we know, it's surprising that rates of participation in physical activity are declining, and the number of people classified as 'sedentary' is rising. This programme covers a number of issues: Definition of 'physical activity' and 'active lifestyle', Factors that influence patterns of participation, What initially motivates people to take up more exercise, Continued involvement in physical activity. This much-needed programme will help to address the worrying increase in physical inactivity.
