DR. DAVE'S FITNESS FACTS

Fit Kids Do Better In The Classroom
by Dr. David Williams

New research has shown that children that are more physically active perform better in the classroom. Data were gathered on subject's physical attributes (height, weight, body mass), fitness levels and cognitive abilities.

Researchers measured the physical fitness of 500 third, fourth, and fifth graders, including aerobic capacity, flexibility and muscular strength.

Cognitive function was determined by analyzing scores on standardized academic performance tests and by observing and measuring neuroelectric and behavioral responses to stimulus discrimination tasks.

The researchers concluded that there is a strong relationship between academic achievement and fitness scores.
