Why Be Active?

All over the world, including at UBC, research is being developed to help us better understand the importance of physical activity, and how to best use physical activity to promote our wellbeing.  Here’s some research that can help you design the best physical activity experience, use your time most effectively for the best results, and help to motivate you about why you should start or maintain being active.   Check back regularly, as we plan to expand these resources.
