Martin, B W (2010). Comportement de la population suisse en matière d’activité physique : état des lieux en 2010. Revue Médicale Suisse, 6(258):1489-1490.

Abstract

Since 1999 Switzerland has physical activity recommendations for adults, since 2006 also for school-age children and adolescents. The best available estimates indicate that 32% of adults meet the recommendations for three endurance-type training sessions and another 9% the minimal recommendations of half an hour moderate intensity physical activity on most days of the week. 13% of adolescents seem to meet the minimal recommendations of one hour on every day of the week, 35% on five days per week. All approaches for physical activity promotion are very important, with the medical care settings having a particular role in reaching inactive individuals.
