"Dreadmills": Is there such a thing as sustainable exercise
New York
Optional Fields
Improved understanding of the benefits arising from participation in sport and exercise has led to increasing adoption of low-risk lifestyle behaviours. This is a significant positive social change which gyms can help to facilitate. However, their sustainability must be questioned, as well as the hidden health impacts that may be lurking within. This chapter explores the importance of the environmental quality when we exercise and suggests ways in which we can improve exercise-related sustainability. Multilevel interventions that look broadly at the physical environment in which we live will be required to develop a healthier population that engages in pro-environmental behaviour.
