The case for supporting active living
More than 80% of adults do not meet the guidelines for both aerobic and muscle-strengthening activities, and only one in three adults receive the recommended amount of physical activity each week.
Recent reports project that by 2030, half of all adults (115 million adults) in the United States will be obese.
Obesity-related illness, including chronic disease, disability, and death, is estimated to carry an annual cost of $190.2 billion.
Not getting enough physical activity comes with high health and financial costs. It can lead to heart disease, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, and obesity. In addition, lack of physical activity costs the nation $117 billion annually for related health care.
According to the American Heart Association, cardiovascular diseases account for 1/3 of all deaths. By 2035, people will have at least 1 cardiovascular disease. Learn more about the cost of cardiovascular disease here.
