Short-term health: children benefit from physical activity especially when they are still developing, it helps to build muscle, the skeletal frame, aid in the development of heart and lung function and is an important part of the prevention of childhood obesity. The health benefits also include an ability to sleep well and for longer periods. If children can partake in the physical activity outdoors they are less likely to develop colds and flu. Long-term health: physical activity supports health and well-being in the short-term but can also be useful in the long-term, if we can promote the short-term benefits for children and instil in them a positive approach towards physical activity, then this can span a lifetime. As practitioners we must support this attitude towards the outdoors, sports and active game playing to counteract the effects of our modern society i.e.
It helps anyone who wants to build muscle endurance, increase lean body mass, boost strength, and increase anaerobic performance. Creatine helps your cells retain water, which is good for performance. This can, however, give you a higher body weight; this is why fighters and other weight-class athletes may need to cycle off creatine from time to time.

Explain why positive relationships with children and young people are important and how these are built and maintained. Children and young people become confident, independent and most resilient where they are secure in the relationships around them. Relationships take time to become established, because they are based on a growing understanding of one another. Effective communication helps children and young people develop confidence, feelings of self-worth and positive relationships with others. It also helps them grow into adults who have positive feelings about themselves and others.

Researchers have “hypothesized that by participating in arts-based mindfulness-based methods, children could learn to focus on and better understand their feelings and thoughts without judging these experiences (Coholic, Eys, & Lougheed, 2012, p.835)”. Mindfulness is described as a process of developing a nonjudgmental accepting awareness of moment-by-moment
For example, regular brisk walking can help you: • Maintain a healthy weight • Prevent or manage various conditions, including heart disease, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes • Strengthen your bones • Lift your mood • Improve your balance and coordination The faster, farther and more frequently you walk, the greater the benefits.

Each have their merits and drawbacks, and which is the best choice for you largely depends upon what you'll enjoy doing most, the health of your joints and how much weight you'd like to lose. “Like walking, biking is low-impact and easy. It's also fun, and according to NutriStrategy, burns a lot of calories - significantly more than brisk walking.” (Bigelow) You’d be forgiven for wondering but stair climbing can have a significant and positive impact on an individual’s health over time.

Marge's AGE levels are quite low. That means she's more likely to enjoy a long, healthy life, while looking and feeling a lot younger than she really is. Louie is younger, but the effects of aging are accelerated due to elevated AGE levels in his body. Marge, even though she's had more birthdays, is in much better shape because she takes care of herself. Her body is healthier and she has the AGE levels of someone nearly half her age.
Impact on Acquisition/Performance One way that growth patterns impact skill acquisition and performance in physical activity is due to the rate if the growth pattern. When the growth pattern is rapid children may have a lesser ability to learn new motor skills (Pangrazi & Beighle 2010). With body physique a more muscular, stronger child will have an easier time performing skills that require speed, strength, and agility, while a smaller thinner child will perform these skills as well they be better at more aerobic like skills (Pangrazi & Beighle 2010). Heavier overweight children may have problems performing in many activities of physical education. Skeletal maturity affects boys and girls differently when it comes to their ability to perform motor skills.
