ACSM Action Alert: Regular Updates to the Federal Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans

A bill has been introduced in Congress calling for regular updates to the federal Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, first released last October. A group of key organizations, including ACSM, originally called for these guidelines during a groundbreaking policy roundtable in 2006.

Regular updates to the federal physical activity guidelines would encourage Americans to get up and active – and would ensure they have the most accurate, scientifically up-to-date information on physical activity. Helping Americans of all ages and health status increase their physical activity level can do much to cut health care costs, improve individual quality of life and boost productivity.

Please support this bill by encouraging your members and constituents to contact their local elected officials.

Simply click here to access ACSM’s easy-to-use Action Alert, featuring ready-to-send language for local representatives. Feel free to send this link to your organization's contacts.

Thank you for your support as we continue to raise the profile of physical activity among our nation’s leaders.
