Article Evaluation
Trever Gannon
I believe the reason this was made is to provide a reason and solution for why people don’t exercise. They go for a wide range of topics such as ethnicity to modern technology. The author mainly targets people in their adulthood but it can be applied to people at a younger age. The author seems to be addressing most adults but to read and comprehend this article you must have an above average reading level.
Right in the beginning the author makes it very clear that they believe in regular physical activity. They seem to be sold on the fact physical activity should be required and promoted by our schools, government, and even our family. After reading this ...view middle of the document...

It appears they refer to a few books and journals to validate their arguments (again it’s hard to tell).
The organization of this article could be improved a lot. When reading this it seemed like the article was all over the place. To start the call to action was positioned more in the body paragraphs when it is normally at the end, but it may work due to the author addressing the people they want to take action right after their call to action. I also thought the location of physical activity history was placed interestingly also. Normally you provide history at the beginning of a paper to provide a better understanding of what you’re reading. The author decided to put the history of physical activity a little lower in the article where it seemed out of place. Overall I found the article was hard to follow but the format was decent. They did manage to put the conclusion at the end of the paper!
While reading this paper I noticed a weak use of transitions. You would finish reading a paragraph of information then be presented with a new group of information. They did separate the paragraphs with bold letters, but that just seemed like a lazy transition to me.
The author was amazing at presenting the information they knew. They would go on and on about what they thought and why the thought that. When it came to providing incites the strength of the article seem to dimmer. When it came to arguing information the author knew what they were doing. They would present both sides of exercising and what would happen if you choose either side. This gave you well rounded information on both exercising and not exercising.
When you read this article you feel like you’re sitting in a lecture hall. The reason I get this impression is because the information is focused and meant to sink into your head at a very fast rate. If they would have presented the information in a simpler manner the information might have been easier to comprehend.
The author uses a lot of large words that they don't really define. Some of these...
