  • Sedentary, inactive lifestyles contribute to cardiovascular disease and overall morbidity and mortality in the United States and worldwide. Americans do not get enough physical activity.
  • The National Physical Activity Plan presents a multi-sector approach to work together to increase physical activity in all segments of the U.S. population.
  • This is a call to action for all American Heart Association volunteers and members to act locally, regionally, and nationally to promote increased physical activity and structured exercise in daily lives.
