Teenagers

Fitness

In today's world teens face new social and academic pressures in addition to dealing with emotional and physical changes, so it is recommended that teens get at least 1 hour of physical activity on most, preferably all, days of the week. Yet physical activity tends to decline during the teen years. Many teens drop out of organized sports and participation in daily physical education classes is a thing of the past.

Parents should try to give teens control over how they decide to be physically active. But given the opportunity and interest, teens can reap health benefits from almost any activity they enjoy, from skateboarding, in-line skating, yoga, swimming, dancing or kicking a foot bag in the driveway. Weight training, under supervision of a qualified adult, can improve strength and help prevent sports injuries.

Teens can work physical activity into everyday routines, such as walking to school, doing chores or finding an active part-time job. They can take be camp counsellors, babysitters or assistant coaches for young sports teams, jobs that come with a chance to be active.

Once they get started, many teens enjoy the feeling of well-being, reduced stress, and increased strength and energy they get from exercise, and then might gravitate to exercise without nudging from a parent.
