Recommendation

The USPSTF (2002) states that the evidence is insufficient to recommend for or against behavioral counseling in primary care settings to promote physical activity. Organizations that include the AAFP, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (Healthy People 2010), CDC, AAP, American Heart Association (AHA), and ACOG recommend that health care providers counsel all individuals about physical activity. These recommendations are based on the known health benefits of physical activity rather than on the effectiveness of counseling for promoting changes in physical activity (Eden et al., 2002).
