Much concern has been expressed about the sedentary lifestyles adopted by a considerable number of children and adolescents (Sallis et al., 1992).

It is also assumed that sedentary children typically grow into inactive adults. Thus, the failure to promote physical exercise among youngsters may have implications for their degree of wellness and quality of life across the lifespan.
