Abstract

Physical activity confers many important health benefits. The 'active living message' recommends that adults should accumulate 30 ruin of moderate-intensity physical activity (e.g. brisk walking) on most--preferably all--days of the week, but the populations of most developed countries are not meeting this target. Walking is one mode of activity that most people can do without skills, equipment, facilities or extra expense and walking has less bias in terms of age, sex and social class than facility-based exercise. Thus we need to investigate interventions that promote walking.
