Remember your 20s’ body? Researchers explain that physical fitness peaks at about 20 years of age and remains there until the early 30s. That is when the fitness levels begin to decline steadily into old age. The good news is that those who have the high fitness levels in their 20s typically stay physically healthy and use less healthcare services during their lives. Adolescence is the most important stage in all our lives. It is when our cardiovascular, cardiorespiratory, skeletal, and muscular strength are formed, forming the foundation of health for life. Bone mineral density (BMD) peaks in the late teens. BMD is the main factor in whether a person develops osteoporosis and may suffer its effects later in life. Physical activity and nutrition are factors that teenagers have control of to build the best bodies they can for their lifetime. (1) Do they? Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc recognizes that adolescent teens do not think about these things. The teen years have many other distractions demanding their interest!


Competition and activity seem to work! The best ways to get teens to as peak a fitness level as possible is to encourage them to move early in life. One study set up competition among student groups equipped with pedometers and monitored their steps for 12 weeks. Students in the study all ended up doing more physical activity both in in-school and in after-school activities. Their cardiorespiratory fitness increased. Body fat and waist-to-height ratios decreased. The leisure-time physical activity increased even a year after the intervention.
