Canada's New Physical Activity Guidelines - What do they mean to you?
Join Winnipeg in motion and local physical activity expert, Dr. Elizabeth Ready, professor with the faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management, as she helps you to make sense of the new physical activity guidelines.
Come out and complete a physical activity self assessment to see how you "measure up" to the new guidelines and learn how to maximize the time you spend walking or working out by changing your intensity.

Join us and be sure to pick up your copy of the new guidelines, and for your chance to win one of 10 Winnipeg in motion water bottles and other in motion gear.

Canada's New Physical Activity Guidelines
To help Canadians move toward healthier lifestyles, the Public Health Agency of Canada supported the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP) in reviewing the latest science on physical activity and in developing new physical activity guidelines. The new guidelines were released on January 24, 2011.
Canada's New Sedentary Guidelines
To complement Canada's new physical activity guidelines released in January 2011, the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP) has just released Canada's Sedentary Behaviour Guidelines for Children and Youth - the first of their kind in the world.
The new Sedentary Behaviour guidelines provide recommendations to Canadian children and youth on limiting sedentary behaviour during discretionary or "free" time in order to reduce health risks.
The two guidelines together can be thought of as a recipe for families to give children the best possible chance to gain health and social benefits. Check out the new Sedentary Behaviour Guideline information sheets for children and youth.
