BACKGROUND

Globally, more than 1.4 billion adults are at risk of developing or exacerbating diseases due to a lack of physical activity, according to the recent World Health Organization (WHO) study in 2018.

Physical inactivity is a complex and multi-factorial behavior whose determinants vary across countries. Over the past years, Singapore’s sedentary lifestyle influenced by rapid urbanization has been a public health concern with serious health implications. Lack of time or energy and its tropical climate further deter individuals from participating in physical activity.

OBJECTIVES

This symposium aims to:

  • Review the current status of physical activity in Singapore
  • Share national programs and guidelines for promoting and performing physical activity
  • Discuss technological tools for tracking and assessing physical activity; and
  • Highlight nutritional approaches and exercise strategies for maximizing health and physical performance.
