Active Voice: Television Viewing Time Predicts Usual Walking Speed — But Is It the Sitting That's Important?
By Victoria L. Keevil, BMBCh and Katrien Wijndaele, Ph.D.


Victoria L. Keevil, BMBCh Katrien Wijndaele, Ph.D.
Viewpoints presented in SMB commentaries reflect opinions of the authors and do not necessarily reflect positions or policies of ACSM.

Victoria L. Keevil, BMBCh, is a clinician specializing in medicine for older people and was awarded a Wellcome Trust clinical training fellowship to undertake a Ph.D. under the supervision of Prof Kay-Tee Khaw, at the Department of Public Health and Primary Care, University of Cambridge (UK). She is interested in the heterogeneity of physical functional health in later life and in establishing links with modifiable risk factors, including sedentary behavior. Her research was inspired by the need for evidence- based public health policy to promote good health in older age.

Katrien Wijndaele, Ph.D., is a British Heart Foundation (BHF) intermediate basic science research fellow at the Medical Research Council Epidemiology Unit, University of Cambridge (UK). Her primary research interest lies in the potential health consequences of prolonged sitting in adults and children, with an additional focus on sedentary behavior measurement and development of intervention strategies to decrease prolonged sitting.

This commentary presents Drs. Keevil’s and Wijndaele’s views on the topic of a research article which they and other colleagues had published in the April 2015 issue of
Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise® (MSSE).

America's Fittest Cities 2015
The Huffington Post
Parks, farmer's markets, bike commuting, golf courses and swimming pools ... these are just a few of the characteristics that contribute to a city's fitness.

And those are just environmental factors. Of course, you can't judge the health status of a city without taking its inhabitants into consideration.

In the fittest cities, it's more common that a large percentage of the population meets CDC physical activity guidelines, eats the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables daily and has low rates of health issues like heart disease, diabetes and asthma.

Health by Design: The Impact of Community on Wellness
U.S. News and World Report
What exactly is a healthy city?

It's become a commonplace 21st century term, driven in part by the efforts of the World Health Organization and other groups to promote comprehensive local strategies for health protection and sustainable development in our increasingly urban world.

But in America's growing neo-urban environments – which seek to blend the best aspects of urban and suburban living – the phrase takes on a much more precise meaning. A healthy city enhances how we live, work and play, delivering a quality of life that emphasizes health, well-being and social connectedness.

These community attributes don't happen without intentional planning focused on the long-term. It's a mindset that more communities need to proactively strive to attain.
