Abstract

Sixty percent of the Scottish population is not active enough to derive health benefits and approximately 51% are classified as overweight or obese (The Scottish Office Department of Health, 1999: Towards a Healthier Scotland: A White Paper on Health. Edinburgh: Stationery Office). Exercise alone has been shown to be an effective strategy for reducing obesity (Ross et al., 2000: Exercise and Sport Science Reviews, 28, 165-170).
