The evaluation and designing of data gathering tools has resulted in the collection of the following data on the problem of physical inactivity among the youths. The United Kingdom department of Health and Human Services recommends that young people between the ages of 18-25 should participate in at least sixty minutes of physical activity. However, this is not usually the case because only 18% of young people within this age are those who are active physically. 29 % of young people of this age have a record of attending physical education only in institutions of learning while the rest do not attend any form of physical fitness exercise (Humphreys & Ruseski, 2007, p. 541).
Lack of physical activity affects academic achievement of a person such as concentration and attentiveness in classroom. 34% of academic mischievous individuals results due to lack of physical activity. According to Humphreys and Ruseski (2007, p. 544), physical inactivity influences overweight and obesity and increases the risks of one getting diabetes, high cholesterol, asthma, high blood pressure, poor health status and arthritis. Over 60 % of deaths and diagnose cases of the above conditions among affected individual has its roots from lack of physical activity.
Physical inactivity influences and raises the chances of a person dying prematurely, developing diabetes, dying of heart diseases and colon cancer (Humphreys & Ruseski, 2007, p. 545). 58 % of problems and general deaths in hospitals arising from the above conditions have their causes traced from physical inactivity. From the data gathering and information collection, 77% percent of individuals between ages 18 and 25 years reported not to have participated in a free-time physical activity during the previous fourteen days.
