Physical inactivity is one of the most significant health risks of our age, reaching epidemic levels, and contributing to an estimated 3.2 million deaths globally every year* The UK is now recognised as ‘the fat man of Europe’ with one in four adults now deemed obese and the sedentary lifestyle of both children and adolescents is expected to have long-term negative implication on their health and wellbeing.Get your FREE copy here

The sea change that is needed to tackle inactivity in both adults and children through regular exercise means that the leisure, sports and play sector is undergoing an unprecedented transformation. With this come challenges in innovation, design, development, delivery, engagement and funding of this new ‘physical landscape’.
To meet this need Stable Publishing is launching the Physical Activity Facilities magazine to reflect this shift and much broader scope of the sector. The magazine replaces the highly successful Play & Sport Matters magazine.
The government’s new sports strategy, published just before Christmas, takes a new, broader approach removing the distinction between sport and physical activity for the first time, and setting aside specific funding to tackle inactivity. Physical Activity Facilities magazine will address the increasing importance of physical activity and facilities.
The editorial scope embraces all forms of physical activity, in the public, private and education sectors. Physical activity facilities magazine will cover the design, build and management of play, sports, fitness, recreation and leisure facilities across the UK.
Published four times a year, it will feature a mix of news, trends, developments overseas, interviews, case studies and comment covering all aspects of physical activity.
Physical Activity Facilities magazine launches in May 2016 and the first issue will be published in tandem with leisure design & build magazine.
