Remember your 20s’ body? Researchers explain that physical fitness peaks at around 20 years of age and stays there into the early 30s. That is when the fitness levels start to decline gradually into old age. The good news is that those who have the peak fitness levels in their 20s usually stay physically healthy and use 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 formed, forming the foundation of health for life. Bone mineral density (BMD) peaks in the late teens. BMD is the main influence in whether a person gets osteoporosis and may suffer its complications 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 lifetime. (1) Do they? The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider knows adolescent teens do not worry about these things. The teen years have many other distractions drawing their attention!


Competition and activity seem to work! The most efficient ways to get teens to as peak a fitness level as imaginable is to encourage them to move early in life.

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 for a year after the intervention.
