In a recent study by the Canadian Fitness and Lifestyle Research Institute, it was concluded that the health and quality of life of two-thirds of Canadians are threatened due to physical inactivity.

Studies such as this one consistently show that the majority of Canadians recognize the need for lifestyle changes and cite the need to increase their level of physical activity. At the same time, they say that the biggest barrier to increasing their activity is time.

And if people say a shortage of time is contributing to an unhealthy lifestyle, then employers share some responsibility for doing something about it.
