The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans (2nd edition) provides evidence-based recommendations for youths and adults to safely get the physical activity they need to stay healthy. There are updated guidelines for older adults, adults with chronic health conditions, and adults with disabilities.
The United States currently has low levels of adherence to the guidelines: only 26% of men, 19% of women, and 20% of adolescents meet the recommendations.
