    Emerging public health information suggests that to reach the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's goal to improve health and fitness, prevent disease and disability, and enhance quality of life for all Americans through physical activity, we must create a culture that integrates physical activity into our daily lives. The ACSM American Fitness Index[tm] (AFI) program developed a valid and reliable measure of health and community fitness at a metropolitan level to: Provide community leaders with information to understand the personal, community, societal and environmental influences on physical activity and healthy eating; Develop strategies to promote physical activity at multiple levels of influence; and Take action through local community mobilization with the AFI Community Action Guide, health promotion partners and other best practices.
