Physical Activity and Learning.

by Susana Urkía, February 11, 2017

Regular physical activity benefits learning capacity, as well as improves gross motor skills. From an early age, exercise and participation in sports creates neural pathways in the brain, thereby increasing children’s intellectual development, concentration, problem solving ability, and reaction time.

Exercise not only leads to improved physical development, but also increases learning speed. Research has shown a correlation between physical fitness and better performance on tests of basic knowledge in students of all ages.

According to James Pivarnik, co-author of a recent study, “Now we know that being in good condition leads to better academic achievement, from which it can be deduced that keeping fit and being successful go hand-in-hand.”

Are you already fit? Or do you want to improve your physical and mental fitness?
