WHO: Global Recommendations on Physical activity for Health

551
WHO developed the "Global Recommendations on Physical Activity for Health" with the aim of providing national and regional policymakers with guidance on the dose-response relationship between frequency, duration, intensity, type and total amount of physical activity needed for preventing non-communicable diseases (NCDs). The recommendations address three age groups: 5–17 years old; 18–64 years old; and 65 years old and above.

Physical Activity

549
To help Canadians move toward healthier lifestyles, the Public Health Agency of Canada supported the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP) in reviewing the latest science on physical activity and in developing new physical activity guidelines. Canada's Physical Activity Guides, which were based on the previous guidelines, are no longer being distributed by the Public Health Agency of Canada. Canadians are encouraged to refer to our Get Active Tip Sheets for the latest information on physical activity.

However, a comprehensive assessment of fitness requires additional measures. This article provides up-to-date estimates of fitness levels of Canadians aged 20 to 69 years. Results are compared with estimates from 1981.
