Quantifying the Cost of Physical Inactivity

The scientific evidence is clear -- regular physical activity reduces the risk of developing diabetes, high blood pressure and some cancers. It also lowers blood pressure, helps build and maintain healthy bones, muscles and joints and promotes psychological wellbeing. And a physically inactive population costs money!

We have developed a very easy-to-use tool that can provide an estimate of the financial cost of physically inactive people to a particular community, city, state or business. We also provide companion resources and information you need to re-allocate resources and plan for healthier workplaces and communities that are more supportive of physical activity.
