Physical activity and exercise are the main components of cardiovascular disease prevention and health promotion. To improve public health and combat noncommunicable diseases, regular physical activity should be promoted and implemented from early childhood. Other efforts should be directed at finding efficient ways to sustain physical activity and limit sedentary lifestyle across the lifespan. A safe environment for most active individuals, including competitive athletes, through preparticipation screening and periodic monitoring, should also be provided. These tasks require a cross-disciplinary approach combining data from epidemiological studies, new technological discoveries, and basic or clinical research on physical activity and cardiology. All research related to the described area, including systematic reviews and meta-analyses, original research, or short communications on important basic science and clinical findings, expert opinions, as well as comprehensive case reports are highly welcomed for submission.
