Remember your 20s’ body? Researchers say that physical fitness peaks at around 20 years of age and remains there into the early 30s. That’s when the fitness levels begin to drop steadily into old age. The good news is that those who have the high fitness levels in their 20s usually stay physically healthy and use less healthcare services during their lives. Adolescence is the most important phase 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 feel its effects later in life. Physical activity and nutrition are factors that teens have the ability to influence the building of the best bodies they can for their lifetime. (1) Do they? Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers knows adolescent teens don’t think about these things. The teen years have many other distractions drawing their interest!


Competition and activity seem to work! The most efficient ways to get teens to as peak a fitness level as imaginable is to encourage them to move early in life. One study arranged competition among student groups outfitted with pedometers and monitored their steps for 12 weeks. Students in this 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 increased for a year after the intervention.
