HALO Director Dr. Mark Tremblay and his colleague Dr. John Reilly (Scotland) wrote an article titled “As schools reopen, will this be the least fit generation of schoolchildren ever?” that was just published in The Conversation.

The authors used the Global Matrix 3.0 findings to highlight the low level of fitness among children and lack of useful national cardio fitness data in many countries. A recent Canadian national survey study was cited to show the impact of the COVID-19 virus outbreak on movement and play behaviours of Canadian children and youth.
