Remember when you were in your 20s? Researchers report that physical fitness peaks at around 20 years of age and remains there into the early 30s. That is when the fitness levels begin 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 seek less healthcare services during their lives. Adolescence is the most important period in all our lives. It is when our cardiovascular, cardiorespiratory, skeletal, and muscular strength are built, forming the foundation of health for life. Bone mineral density (BMD) peaks in the late teen years. BMD is the main factor in whether a person gets osteoporosis and may feel its complications later in life. Physical activity and nutrition are issues that teenagers have control of to build the best bodies they can for their lifetime. (1) Do they? OrthoIllinois Chiropractic knows 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 most efficient 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 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 remained high for a year after the intervention.
