Objective: Design and validate eight urban routes in Lleida, to be used as prescription instruments by physicians and nurses at Primary Care Centres (CAPs). Methodologies: Before and during making use of the routes, diverse anthropometric and physiological measurements were taken among volunteers (n = 175), chosen from diverse CAPs in Lleida. Results: The data collected determined which variables influenced upon the intensity of the physical activity. Intervals were established within which future practitioners could perform age-specific activities under medical supervision. º: This experience allows establishing a methodology to validate routes for exercise on prescription at three levels of intensity (light, moderate, intense) based on medical diagnosis.
