China is facing significant public health challenges related to social and demographic changes and changing lifestyles. Public health in China concerns with the increasing rate of overweight and obesity among youth in the country, coupled with the low prevalence of adolescents meeting recommended levels of physical activity. The reality of advances in modern technology (Internet, smartphones, video games) have significantly reduced the amount of time Chinese schoolchildren spend exercising on playgrounds and in public gyms. Limited access to school and community resources, especially in rural areas, further reduces opportunities for children to engage in physical education and participate in other modern and traditional sports activities. The process of Reforming China’s youth physical education system to address insufficient physical activity in schools includes: reducing the academic load experienced by students and increasing time for physical education; reforming the current physical education program with an emphasis on increasing the time spent studying at school; creation within the school of opportunities for students to participate in sports and physical education; integration of the problem of physical education of youth in China.
