Remember your 20s’ body? Researchers say that physical fitness peaks at about 20 years of age and remains there until the early 30s. That’s when the fitness levels begin to decline gradually into old age. The good news is that those who have the high fitness levels in their 20s typically stay physically healthy and seek 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 developed, creating the foundation of health for life. Bone mineral density (BMD) peaks in the late teens. BMD is the main influence in whether a person acquires osteoporosis and may feel its complications in later life. Physical activity and nutrition are issues that teenagers have the ability to influence the building of the best bodies they can for their future. (1) Do they? Cross Chiropractic Center recognizes that adolescent teens do not think about these things. The teen years have many other diversions drawing their interest!


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. One study set up 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 decreased. The leisure-time physical activity improved for a year after the intervention. (2) Cross Chiropractic Center devises treatment plans for Sandy Springs chiropractic patients of all ages that includes nutrition and exercise suggestions to get the most out of your body no matter its age!
