Edited by Vilberto Stocchi, Pierpaolo De Feo, David A. Hood
The aim of this volume is to underline that promoting physical activity is crucial to preventing illness and maintaining our health, thus leading to a reduction in healthcare costs.
Over the last decade studies have shown that physical exercise plays an important role in maintaining an individual's psycho-physical balance.
Physical activity therefore helps in tackling today's major health challenges, including diabetes, high blood pressure, and cardiorespiratory diseases.
