2008 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans

A landmark event
The United States Department of Health and Human Services issued the first set of Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans (October 2008). These guidelines will be similar to the widely recognized Dietary Guidelines for Americans and will be updated every 5 years.

All Clinical Exercise Physiologists should become familiar with these guidelines and should advocate the recommendations from this report in their communities.
