PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember when you were in your 20s?
Researchers report that physical fitness peaks at around
20 years of age and remains high into 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
peak 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 formed, 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 issues that teens
have the ability to influence the building of the
best bodies they can for their future. (1) Do they?
Watertown Wellness Center recognizes that adolescent teens do not
worry about these things. The teen years have many other distractions
demanding their interest!
HOW CAN WE HELP Watertown TEENS BUILD THE BEST
Competition and activity seem to work! The
most efficient ways to get teens to as peak a fitness level as possible
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 decreased. The leisure-time
physical activity remained high for a year
after the intervention. (2) Watertown Wellness Center devises
treatment plans for Watertown chiropractic patients of all ages that incorporates
nutrition and exercise suggestions to get the most out of your body no matter its age!
