It's A Lifestyle

July 1, 2014

Youth fitness continues to fall. According to the latest research from the national center for health statistics, the number of teenagers aged 12-15 years with adequate fitness continues to decline. Here's a challenge. Either individually or with family or friends, add 15-30 minutes of activity to your daily routine each day. Try to make it an activity that is fun for you and at the same time easy to do. Invite your friends to join you at the park or playground for a game of kickball or dodge ball. You might try a game of jump rope.
