This chapter summarizes the conclusions and recommendations from the Task Force on interventions to increase physical activity using three types of approaches: informational, behavioral and social, and environmental and policy. To increase physical activity using informational approaches, the Task Force recommends community-wide campaigns and point-of-decision prompts. To increase physical activity using behavioral or social approaches, the Task Force recommendations include school-based physical education, individually-adapted health behavior change programs, and social support interventions in community settings. To increase physical activity using environmental or policy approaches, the Task Force recommends the creation of or enhanced access to places for physical activity combined with information outreach activities, and point-of-decision prompts.
