Abstract

This chapter will introduce you to and define physical activity and sedentary behaviour. It will highlight the low levels of the population meeting the recommendations of physical activity in the UK. Thus, interventions are needed to increase physical activity levels. Using a lifespan approach, we will introduce you to key interventions. Case studies will highlight the key components of these interventions as well as what community sports managers need to consider when developing their own approaches through the highlighting of good practice.
