Personalized technical advice on the physical activity and physical exercise prescription program of the Community of Madrid
Through the Physical Activity and Physical Exercise Prescription Program of the Community of Madrid, the aim is to facilitate a standardized process of promoting the practice of physical activity and physical exercise from the Health Centers of the Community of Madrid.
Physical inactivity and a sedentary lifestyle represent two factors associated with a higher risk of mortality and non-communicable diseases. The first refers to not complying with the recommendations for physical activity beneficial to health and the second, to the fact of continuously and regularly maintaining behaviors linked to activities that only slightly exceed basal energy expenditure such as: watching television, lying down or sitting.
There is more and more scientific evidence that demonstrates the importance of both carrying out physical activity and reducing a sedentary lifestyle, and therefore a process of prescribing physical activity and physical exercise is facilitated from Primary Care, in which health professionals will make available to users different services and useful tools to facilitate their initiation into sports practice.
