Summary 2008 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans: Understanding the Basics presents a detailed overview of the U.S. physical-activity guidelines that were released in October 2008 by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The video discusses the fact that the guidelines are based on a document that was developed during 2007-2008 that summarized the science related to physical activity and health. Featuring a breakout session at the 2009 ACSM Health & Fitness Summit, the video reviews the process involved in developing the guidelines, as well as details the specific guidelines for the various age groups
