On behalf of the Organising Committee, we are happy to welcome you to the 27th  Biennial symposium of the ICPAFR to be held in Hamilton, New Zealand between 29 and 30th October 2013. The Waikato Institute of Technology and the School of Sport and Exercise Science are honoured to co-organise this event.
ICPAFR, one of the oldest and most interdisciplinary physical activity-related scientific societies, has a membership spanning a wide range of scientific disciplines. It aims to develop a better understanding of all the complex phenomena that the perspective of physical activity for general fitness includes and with a lifespan perspective. Moreover, it aims to exchange expertise and knowledge, and attempts to identify and focus on problems related to specific components of physical activity, in particular, those connected to the standardisation of tests and measurements.
In this book you will find the Programme as well as the abstracts of both the oral and poster presentations. We have endeavoured not to change the content of the abstracts in the editorial process. The abstracts are arranged per session according to the programme schedule and you will find a list of authors in alphabetical order at the end of the abstract book.
This general symposium theme “Physical activity and fitness across the life span” has been chosen due to the paucity of knowledge and understanding about the latter part of the theme. We hope to contribute to a deeper knowledge of this important area
