Remember your 20s’ body? Researchers say that physical fitness peaks at around 20 years of age and stays high 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 need less healthcare services during their lives. Adolescence is the most important period in all our lives. It’s 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 teens. BMD is the main factor in whether a person acquires osteoporosis and may suffer its difficulties in later life. Physical activity and nutrition are things that teens have the ability to influence the building of the best bodies they can for their future. (1) Do they? Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation 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 possible 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 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 reduced. The leisure-time physical activity remained high even a year after the intervention.
