Summary Regular physical activity is linked to enhanced health and to reduced risk for all-cause mortality and the development of many chronic diseases in adults.
Children and adolescents are more physically active than adults, but participation in physical activity declines in adolescence. School and community programs have the potential to help children and adolescents establish lifelong, healthy physical activity patterns.
This report summarizes recommendations for encouraging physical activity among young people so that they will continue to engage in physical activity in adulthood and obtain the benefits of physical activity throughout life.
These guidelines were developed by CDC in collaboration with experts from universities and from national, federal, and voluntary agencies and organizations. They are based on an in-depth review of research, theory, and current practice in physical education, exercise science, health education, and public health.
The guidelines include recommendations about 10 aspects of school and community programs to promote lifelong physical activity among young people: The Surgeon General's report on physical activity and health emphasizes that regular participation in moderate physical activity is an essential component of a healthy lifestyle 1.
Although regular physical activity enhances health and reduces the risk for all-cause mortality and the development of many chronic diseases among adults 10,17,many adults remain sedentary Although young people are more active than adults are 1many young people do not engage in recommended levels of physical activity 47, In addition, physical activity declines precipitously with age among adolescents 47, Comprehensive school health programs have the potential to slow this age-related decline in physical activity and help students establish lifelong, healthy physical activity patterns 49, This report is one in a series of CDC documents that provide guidelines for school health programs to promote healthy behavior among children and adolescents These physical activity guidelines address school instructional programs, school psychosocial and physical environments, and various services schools provide.
Because the physical activity of children and adolescents is affected by many factors beyond the school setting, these guidelines also address parental involvement, community health services, and community sports and recreation programs for young people.
The guidelines are written for professionals who design and deliver physical activity programs for young people.
At the local level, teachers and other school personnel, community sports and recreation program personnel, health service providers, community leaders, and parents may use the guidelines to promote enjoyable, lifelong physical activity among children and adolescents.
Policymakers and local, state, and national health and education agencies and organizations may use them to develop initiatives that promote physical activity among young people.
In addition, personnel at postsecondary institutions may use these guidelines to train professionals in education, public health, sports and recreation, and medicine. CDC developed these guidelines by reviewing published research; considering the recommendations in national policy documents; convening experts in physical activity; and consulting with national, federal, and voluntary agencies and organizations.
When possible, these guidelines are based on research; however, many are based on behavioral theory and standards for exemplary practice in physical education, exercise science, health education, and public health.
More research is needed on the relationship between physical activity and health among young people, the relationship between physical activity during childhood and adolescence and that during adulthood, the determinants of physical activity among children and adolescents, and the effectiveness of school and community programs promoting physical activity among young people.
Physical activity is "any bodily movement produced by skeletal muscles that results in energy expenditure Exercise is a subset of physical activity that is planned, structured, and repetitive" and is done to improve or maintain physical fitness.
Physical fitness is "a set of attributes that are either health- or skill-related. Specific forms of physical activity and exercise in which young people might participate include walking, bicycling, playing actively i. The places or settings in which young people can engage in physical activity and exercise include the home, school, playgrounds, public parks and recreation centers, private clubs and sports facilities, bicycling and jogging trails, summer camps, dance centers, and religious facilities.
For example, it improves cardiorespiratory endurance, flexibility, and muscular strength and endurance 1, Physical activity may also reduce obesityalleviate depression and anxietyand build bone mass density Physically active and physically fit adults are less likely than sedentary adults to develop the chronic diseases that cause most of the morbidity and mortality in the United States: All-cause mortality rates are lower among physically active than sedentary people Although more research is needed on the association between physical activity and health among young peopleevidence shows that physical activity results in some health benefits for children and adolescents.
For example, regular physical activity improves aerobic endurance and muscular strength 82, Among healthy young people, physical activity and physical fitness may favorably affect risk factors for cardiovascular disease e.
Regular physical activity among children and adolescents with chronic disease risk factors is important Physical activity among adolescents is consistently related to higher levels of self-esteem and self-concept and lower levels of anxiety and stress Although the relationship between physical activity during youth and the development of osteoporosis later in life is unclearevidence exists that weight-bearing exercise increases bone mass density among young peoplePhysical activity among both girls and boys tends to decline steadily during adolescence.
Demographic factors include sex, age, and race or ethnicity. Girls are less active than boys, older children and adolescents are less active than younger children and adolescents, and among girls, blacks are less active than whites 47,48, Individual factors positively associated with physical activity among young people include confidence in one's ability to engage in exercise i.6 The Ministry of Education supports and promotes the participation of students in daily physical activity, and is committed to supporting a healthy school environment.
Welcome to the UIL: The University Interscholastic League was created by The University of Texas at Austin to provide leadership and guidance to public school debate and athletic teachers. Since the UIL has grown into the largest organization of its kind in the world.
My Participation in the ASB to Raise School Spirit at Homecoming I had to create a united front with the administration, ASB Director and the ASB Executive Council.
We had meetings and spent copious hours planning Homecoming. I couldn’t understand how my passion for the medical field had any correlation with serving as a representative for the students at my school and actively engaging within the political sphere.
I knew I wanted to pursue a career as a physician, and I was perfectly content embracing the safety net of my introverted textbook world. extracurricular activity noun educational activities outside of the regular curriculum Relevance ranks synonyms and suggests the best matches based on how closely a .
