Health and Fitness Habits Now May Affect Your Health for 2 Decades - North Attleboro

Tuesday, March 04, 2014

Researchers found that current health and fitness habits may influence our overall health and fitness over the next 18 years.

They used a four-stage "biopsychosocial model" to pinpoint factors that could have an impact on future health and fitness:

  • Environmental factors, such as socioeconomic status and migration background.
  • Personal factors, including social support, stress management strategies and the feeling of coherence.
  • Behavioral factors, such as smoking, physical exercise and nutrition habits
  • Physical fitness and health.

Health and fitness habits affect us 18 years later.

They found all factors in all four stages had both a direct and indirect impact on participants' physical fitness and health.

The areas that had the most influence included migration background, socioeconomic status, stress management strategies, expectations of exercise impact, and physical exercise and nutrition habits.

However, the researchers found that nutrition and physical exercise habits reported at the baseline of the study affected the fitness of participants during the following 18 years later.

“The results of our study reveal how important it is to acquire health-promoting habits at early adult age already. This should also be in the focus of prevention measures."

Changes to physical fitness also influence risk factors relevant to health. The research team concludes that they plan to further investigate these results to better determine how health and fitness behaviors impact future health.

Last year, Medical News Today reported on a study suggesting that even if a person does not become physically active until later in life, their health will still see benefits.
