KEY FINDINGS: Data from the National Health Interview Survey, 2000, 2005, and 2010 In 2010, about one in three adults (32.4%) who had seen a physician or other health professional in the past 12 months had been advised to begin or continue to do exercise or physical activity. Between 2000 and 2010, the percentage of adults receiving advice to exercise increased by about 10 percentage points. Among adults aged 85 and over, the percentage receiving advice to exercise nearly doubled between 2000 (15.3%) and 2010 (28.9%). Receiving advice to exercise increased for adults with hypertension, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes. Adults who were overweight or obese had the largest percentage point increases over the decade 2000-2010 in being advised to exercise.
