Active Life

The world has changed. Physical inactivity levels have dropped and health care costs have increased

The growing sedentary nature of everyday life is creating communities with alarmingly low levels of physical activity. Globally over 25% of all adults, and over 80% of adolescents, fail to meet the minimum levels of recommended physical activity. The price is high, and everyone is paying, both individually and as a society. The cost of inactivity-related diseases, dependency, and lost productivity are impacting us all. We should no longer ask ourselves IF we need to act, but rather HOW.
