“The majority of children who participate in ‘team sports’ don’t meet the federal recommendation of one hour a day of moderate-to-vigorous exercise, according to a study released Monday.
The federal-government guidelines recommend children and teens get at least 60 minutes per day. It is estimated that fewer than 10% meet the goal.
Many parents believe if their children participate in team sports, they they must be getting enough exercise. Researches at San Diego State and the University of California, San Diego showed that isn’t necessarily the case.
Just 2% of softball players, and fewer than 10% of team sports participants met the 60-minute exercise goal at practice.”
It’s easy to figure out because of all the standing around I guess.
But that’s some good research for the martial arts business world – don’t you think?
If you keep your classes moving and allow kids to train two or three days per week you are really helping them lead healthier lives.
Of even more interest is the fact that you can use this study to help you!
Kids and exercise is only gonna gain more an more mainstream momentum as time goes on.
Think about it – here in the U.S., Michelle Obama made this her leading cause!
