Abstract

England’s chief medical officer in 2009 called physical activity a potential “wonder drug,”1 and promoting physical activity has been called a “best buy” in public health.2 In our sedentary and technologically advanced societies, population levels of physical activity are low, and knowledge about how to invest in this best buy is urgently needed. Our challenge is to find methods of making this wonder drug more palatable to more people more often
