 Changes in Lifestyle can Lead to Less Leisure Time Physical Activity in Adults

Changes in both physical status and lifestyle can lead to less leisure-time physical activity (LTPA) in adults, suggests a new study.

The authors wrote that over the 16-year period, an average of 32 percent of the respondents decreased their LTPA levels.

Margaret de Groh, one of the supervisors of the study said that in public health, they looked at a number of issues related to modifiable risk factors, and physical activity was always one of those.

The study underscored the lifelong challenges people faced in maintaining leisure time physical activity.

Kristine Madsen, M.D., assistant professor in the Joint Medical Program and Public Health Nutrition at UC Berkeley School of Public Health asserted that the physical activity was a very key predictor of cardiovascular health.

Madsen noted that those with more education were less likely to decrease their LTPA.

The study is published in American Journal of Preventive Medicine.
