Remember when you were in your 20s? Researchers say that physical fitness peaks at around 20 years of age and stays high into 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 best fitness levels in their 20s typically stay physically healthy and seek less healthcare services throughout their lives. Adolescence is the most important period 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 teen years. BMD is the main factor in whether a person develops osteoporosis and may suffer its complications later in life. Physical activity and nutrition are factors that teens have control of to build the best bodies they can for their lifetime. (1) Do they? Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC knows adolescent teens don’t think about these things. The teen years have many other diversions 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 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 showed 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 even a year after the intervention.
