Se realizó un estudio multidisciplinario que aborda la importancia de la actividad física en diversos contextos de salud y bienestar humano, con un enfoque particular en la inclusión de personas con discapacidades. Utilizando una combinación de teorías como la Teoría del Comportamiento Planificado y la Teoría Social Cognitiva, se exploran los vínculos entre la actividad física y los sistemas del organismo humano, las enfermedades crónicas, la salud mental, el rendimiento académico, la estética corporal, el envejecimiento saludable, la calidad de vida, y la nutrición. El método emplea una revisión exhaustiva de la literatura y un análisis crítico de las prácticas actuales. Los resultados destacan la necesidad de superar diversas barreras, como las físicas, psicológicas, y económicas, para lograr una participación inclusiva en la actividad física. Las principales conclusiones enfatizan la importancia de la colaboración comunitaria, las tecnologías y herramientas de apoyo, y las políticas inclusivas para fomentar la actividad física en todas las poblaciones.

Palabras clave: actividad física, inclusión, salud mental, envejecimiento saludable, enfermedades crónicas, calidad de vida, nutrición, personas con discapacidades.
