Remember your 20s’ body? Researchers report that physical fitness peaks at about 20 years of age and stays there until the early 30s. That is when the fitness levels start to drop gradually into old age. The good news is that those who have the best fitness levels in their 20s typically stay physically healthy and need less healthcare services throughout their lives. Adolescence is the most important phase in all our lives. It’s when our cardiovascular, cardiorespiratory, skeletal, and muscular strength are developed, 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 gets osteoporosis and may suffer its complications later in life. Physical activity and nutrition are things that teens have control of to build the best bodies they can for their future. (1) Do they? Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation knows adolescent teens do not worry 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 imaginable is to get them moving early in life. One study set up competition among student groups outfitted with pedometers and monitored their steps for 12 weeks. Students in the study all showed more physical activity both in in-school and in after-school activities. Their cardiorespiratory fitness improved. Body fat and waist-to-height ratios reduced. The leisure-time physical activity improved for a year after the intervention.
