dc.description.abstractIf exercise could be packed in a pill, it would be the single most widely prescribed and beneficial medicine in the nation. —Robert Butler, MD, Chair of the National Institute of Aging As captured by Robert Butler’s quote, there is no disputing the wide-reaching health benefits of exercise training. Despite this, the health burden associated with the diseases of inactivity continues to rise. Each year millions of dollars are invested to promote physical activity, yet uptake remains relatively low as highlighted by data showing that only 20.2% of the US population meet the physical activity guidelines for aerobic and muscle strengthening exercise.1 Given these facts, it is imperative that any research that questions the benefits of exercise, or indeed suggests that exercise is deleterious to health, needs to be handled responsibly and placed within appropriate context.en_US
