HEALTH STATUS - No Leisure Time
Physical Activity
In 2009, approximately one in five Hawai'i residents had no leisure-time physical activity. Hawai'i's rates have been consistently better than the U.S. average and have improved from 1990 when one in three residents reported they had no leisure time physical activity.  However, since 2001, there has not been any additional improvement in the percent of residents participating in some level of physical activity.

Increasing Physical Activity: The adoption and maintenance of regular physical activity are important components of a healthy routine and provide multiple opportunities to improve and maintain health. Moderate physical activity (15 to 30 minutes a day) can substantially reduce the risk of developing or dying from heart disease, diabetes, colon cancer, and high blood pressure.1
