Abstract
  • People cannot perform at their best unless they are healthy and well. A key behavior in attaining and maintaining a high state of health and wellness is physical activity. Regular physical activity participation is widely known to provide numerous physical, psychological, and social benefits. In spite of this, very few people achieve the recommended amount of physical activity. Improving upon this situation is an international priority. Fogg’s behavior model along with Cardinal’s progressive principles for physical activity educators will be introduced in attempt to address this need. Four domains will be featured in which concepts from the model and principles will then be applied in an effort to improve human resource development. The presentation concludes by suggesting that physical activity education can and should occur across the lifespan where people live, learn, work, and play, and where the pursuit of a healthy, active lifestyle should not simply be an individual effort, but rather a societal obligation where making the healthy choice is the easy choice.
