New National Physical Activity Guidelines
The Australian Government has released new national Physical Activity Guidelines for children, young adults, adults, older adults and families.
Australia’s Physical Activity and Sedentary Behaviour Guidelines are supported by a rigorous evidence review process that considered:
- the relationship between physical activity (including the amount, frequency, intensity and type of physical activity) and health outcome indicators, including the risk of chronic disease and obesity; and
- the relationship between sedentary behaviour/sitting time and health outcome indicators, including the risk of chronic disease and obesity.
