Abstract/Summary Designed to be an overall presentation of health-enhancing physical activity (HEPA); this volume is "state of the art" answering key questions in the field such as - why is physical activity important for health?, how much and what kind of physical activity is beneficial for health?, and how can physical activity be promoted for health? It successfully presents a population perspective of the potential and role of physical activity in the promotion of public health. This is essential reading for HEPA experts and actors in research, education, administration and service provision, providing the most recent theoretical and practical evidence base.
