  The objective of this systematic mixed-methods review is to assess what is currently known about the levels of physical activity (PA) and sedentary time (ST) and to contextualize these behaviors among South Asian women with an immigrant background. A systematic search of the literature was conducted using combinations of the key words PA, ST, South Asian, and immigrant. Physical activity can reduce the risk of premature death from a range of conditions. The aim of the study was to explore the motivating and facilitating factors likely to increase physical activity for South Asian adults and their families, in order to develop successful interventions and services.

  International public health guidelines recommend that adults undertake at least −1 of moderate-intensity physical activity. However, the underpinning evidence has largely been obtained from studies of populations of white European descent. It is unclear whether these recommendations are appropriate for other ethnic groups, particularly South Asians, who have . women to cover hair, arms and legs, men from waist to knees.) None of that should preclude participation in physical education where dress codes accommodate both Islamic requirements and safe practice. • Mixed-sex participation should be possible in non contact activities such as badminton, orienteering, tennis and fitness activities, if.

  Technology has replaced outdoor activities and sports with digital devices as forms of recreation and entertainment. So the need is high to get in shape and as Muslims we also must answer to this call. We are able to go to gyms and Muslim women can find all women’s gyms or women’s rooms to start up their workout routines.   Many pious Muslim women in the United States, like Ms. Shearson, wear hijab in public, loose garments that cover their hair and body, which can hinder movement and add to discomfort during exercise.
