Remember when you were in your 20s? Researchers say that physical fitness peaks at around 20 years of age and remains high until the early 30s. That’s when the fitness levels start to decline steadily into old age. The good news is that those who have the peak fitness levels in their 20s typically stay physically healthy and need less healthcare services throughout their lives. Adolescence is the most important stage in all our lives. It is when our cardiovascular, cardiorespiratory, skeletal, and muscular strength are formed, creating the foundation of health for life. Bone mineral density (BMD) peaks in the late teens. BMD is the main influence in whether a person acquires osteoporosis and may feel its complications later in life. Physical activity and nutrition are issues that teens have control of to build the best bodies they can for their future. (1) Do they? Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn recognizes that adolescent teens do not think about these things. The teen years have many other distractions drawing their interest!


Competition and activity seem to work! The best ways to get teens to as peak a fitness level as possible is to get them moving 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 ended up doing more physical activity both in in-school and in after-school activities. Their cardiorespiratory fitness improved. Body fat and waist-to-height ratios decreased. The leisure-time physical activity improved even a year after the intervention.
