After deciding to attain a higher education as a Kinesiology practitioner , I always wanted to know if we, Californians, are more physically active than the nation as a whole? It's no surprise that many people flock to California for it's consistent weather. However, does this initiate the opportunity to be more physically active?
To find out the latest up to date information regarding this question I encourage you to visit www.cdc.gov/brfss/; interactive databases, then state prevalence data for determining prevalence of physical activity patterns in the state of CA, grouped by age, gender, and race. Compare rates in CA to the rest of the country, and see for yourself.
I thought this website can be a useful tool in helping kinesiology practitioners with latest statistics of health information.
