The Top Ten Reasons That Kids Should Exercise

Listen to these top 10 reasons kids should exercise because the obesity epidemic among kids ages 6 to 19 has reached 15 percent. This is almost quadruple what is was in the late 1960s.

Here are the reasons, according to the American Council on Exercise (ACE):

1) Kids who exercise are likely to continue the good habit as adults.

2) Exercise helps kids reach and maintain a healthy body weight.

3) Kids who exercise have strong muscles, bones and joints.

4) Exercise helps in the development of interpersonal skills, especially for kids who play team sports.

5) Fitness improves overall sleep.

6) Research has found that exercise promotes involved school attendance and enhances academic performance.

7) Kids who exercise have greater self-esteem and better body images.

8) Kids who are regularly active prevent or delay the onset of heart disease, diabetes, obesity and hypertension.

9) Active kids report less anxiety and depression and are happier overall.

10) Exercise improves motor coordination and the development of motor-performance skills.

If the opposite is true for non-exercisers, then get your kids started already!

  1. It is scary and sad how many fat kids are out there these days. Kids just need to start playing outside more like the old days. Less TV and video games, more road hockey and jungle gyms.
