Overview of Committee Report

William Haskell, Ph.D., discussed the overall structure of the committee's report. Certain background information will be addressed such as the challenges surrounding various methods for classifying physical activity (i.e., metabolic/mechanical features, LTPA, TPA, occupational, household, by intensity and the concept of METS). Measurement issues through questionnaires and objective assessment will also be addressed as well as the concept of dose response and physical activity versus physical fitness. Overall the report will focus on general conclusions, reports from the 11 subcommittees and future research recommendations.
