On Sunday, January 23, 2022, as the final part of our three-part series on New Year’s Resolutions, our host Dr. Marianne Ritchie was joined by Mark Stoutenberg, PhD, MSPH, an Associate Professor Chair for the Department of Kinesiology at Temple University for a discussion about the importance of physical activity and how to increase the amount of activity you get!

A sedentary lifestyle and physical inactivity are prevalent and associated with poor health outcomes. Worldwide about 1 in 4 adults are physically inactive and we’re seeing even more sedentary behaviors due to watching TV and time at the computer.
