All of us are concerned with the epidemic of sedentary lifestyles, but how did we get here? More and more people believe that modern civilization has made it all too possible to lead very sedentary lives. At the same time, it is more difficult to be physically active. In Environmental Influences on Physical Activity, a leading health psychologist explains current thinking about how an individual's environment influences physical activity. The DVD also features suggestions for making environmental changes that could create benefits for the whole population.

Among the topics covered:
  • Sedentary lifestyles are widespread
  • Possible environmental influences
  • Summary of research
  • A model to guide interventions
  • Examples of environments that facilitate physical activity

Produced in cooperation with the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM).
