|Promote Physical Activity with the Move Your Way Campaign
In last week’s SMB, we shared a Q&A about the newly released second edition of the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans and the Move Your Way campaign. Now we’re asking for your support in promoting this effort!
With all the fitness fads and conflicting health advice flooding news feeds, it can be hard to catch people’s attention with the physical activity messages that matter. The Move Your Way campaign can help.
The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) developed the Move Your Way campaign to share key recommendations from the second edition guidelines. Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, Move Your Way emphasizes personalized, practical strategies that people can use to fit more activity into their busy lives, while clearly communicating the amount and types of physical activity Americans need to stay healthy.
The campaign includes resources like fact sheets, posters, videos and interactive tools in English and Spanish that health professionals, organizations and communities can use to motivate adults, parents, kids and older adults to be more active.
Health care providers and certified exercise professionals can also access action guides and patient handouts through Exercise is Medicine®, ACSM’s global initiative to make physical activity assessment and promotion a standard in clinical care by connecting health care with evidence-based physical activity resources for people everywhere of all abilities.
