Move Your Way Community Playbook

The Move Your Way® Community Playbook offers tips and resources to help community organizations implement the Move Your Way campaign at the local level. The Move Your Way campaign is the promotional campaign for the second edition of the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans and can help people live healthier lives through increased physical activity.

This playbook is an implementation guide — which means it will help you plan for, conduct, and evaluate your organization’s physical activity efforts, like programs, activities, and events. 

You can follow all the steps in the playbook to plan and run a communications campaign — which includes a series of activities and events and usually lasts for a set amount of time. Or you can pick and choose resources and tips that are most useful for your work — whether you’re planning an event, creating a new program, or expanding existing activities to promote physical activity in your community. Use the playbook and Move Your Way campaign materials to help people in your community get more active!

It’s a good idea to read through the entire playbook once to get a preview of all the tips and resources. Then use the table of contents to come back to specific sections when you need them.

Sign up for physical activity emails and follow us on Twitter @HealthGov and Facebook @HHSHealthGov for updates on campaign activities, including new materials and resources.
