The National Physical Activity Plan is comprised of recommendations that are organized in nine societal sectors:
- Business and Industry
- Community, Recreation, Fitness, and Parks
- Faith-Based Settings
- Mass Media
- Public Health
- Transportation, Land Use, and Community Design
Each sector presents strategies aimed at promoting physical activity. Each strategy also outlines specific tactics that communities, organizations and agencies, and individuals can use to address the strategy. Recognizing that some strategies encompass multiple sectors, the Plan also has several overarching priorities.
