Over the past three decades the study of pediatric physical inactivity has become a public health concern. The decreases in physical activity have been associated with obesity and numerous hypokinetic diseases. In accordance with this public health concern, the study of pediatric physical activity has become a central part of research in the health and exercise science fields.

The Routledge Handbook of Youth Physical Activity is the first book to survey the full depth and breadth of the issues facing this field.
