SURVEY SAYS 19-YEAR-OLDS ONLY AS ACTIVE AS 60-YEAR-OLDS

The state of physical activity in the U.S. is in a sad state of affairs.  According to the findings of recent research, rates of physical activity for many Americans is peaking when children are in the first grade.  And, that same survey is revealing that today’s 19-year-olds are only as active as today’s 60-year-olds.

A recent Washington Post story that was reprinted in the Chicago Times has reported that rates of physical activity among adolescents in the U.S. are slowing down rather than increasing. These decreases are mirrored in the recent ‘Inactivity Pandemic Report 2017’ where youth physical activity saw some of the biggest drops ever.
