Plan Vision
All Americans are physically active and live, work, and play in environments that facilitate regular physical activity.

Plan Mission
Develop a National Plan for Physical Activity that produces a marked and progressive increase in the percentage of Americans who meet physical activity guidelines throughout life.

Plan Goals
The National Plan for Physical Activity will: 

  • Make a compelling and urgent case for increasing physical activity in the American population.
  • Provide a clear roadmap for actions that support short and long term progress in increasing Americans’ physical activity.
  • Develop strategies for increasing physical activity in all population subgroups and reducing disparities across subgroups.
  • Create a sustained and resourced social movement that provides for ongoing coordination, partnerships, capacity building, and evaluation.
  • Develop new and innovative strategies for promoting physical activity.
  • Undergo periodic evaluation to assess achievements in increasing physical activity.
