PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember your 20s’ body?
Researchers say that physical fitness peaks at about
20 years of age and stays there 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
high fitness levels in their 20s typically stay
physically healthy and need less healthcare services during
their lives. Adolescence is the most important stage in all
our lives. It’s 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 factor in
whether a person acquires osteoporosis and may feel
its difficulties later in life.
Physical activity and nutrition are factors that teens
have control of to build the
best bodies they can for their future. (1) Do they?
The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR knows adolescent teens do not
think about these things. The teen years have many other diversions
drawing their interest!
HOW CAN WE HELP Colorado Springs TEENS BUILD THE BEST
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 arranged 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 increased.
Body fat and waist-to-height ratios reduced. The leisure-time
physical activity remained high for a year
after the intervention. (2) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR creates
treatment plans for Colorado Springs chiropractic patients of all ages that includes
nutrition and exercise suggestions to get the most out of your body no matter its age!
