Short description

Review paper. The purpose of the present literature review is to investigate any systematic changes in physical fitness over the last half century. Furthermore, the importance of factors such as gender, occupation, leisure time activities, social class and geographical region are investigated. This type of information may appear to offer information as part of ergonomic intervention programs in some specific professions.
The review is carried out in collaboration with Dr. Kurt Jørgensen, Department of Nutrition and Exercise Sciences at the University of Copenhagen.
