The majority of the world population, including Malaysia, is sedentary, with only a small percentage involved in regular and adequate exercise (Poh et al. , 2008). General levels of physical activity have declined due to urbanisation and industrialisation, where machines now do most of the work previously done by human hands (WCRF/AICR, 2007)lack of physical activity is a global health hazard and is increasing rapidly in both developed and developing countries (WHO, 2003A). Genarally, physical inactivity is estimated to cause 1.9 million deaths globally.
