The brain drain of inactivity or why to keep up with your brain fitness.
A study published on December 6, 2012 in the Journal of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness shows that Middle school students who are in the best physical shape outscored their classmates on standardized tests and brought home better report cards. This is the first study linking children’s fitness to both improved scores on objective tests and better grades. The results showed the fittest children got the highest test scores and the best grades, regardless of gender or whether they’d yet gone through puberty.
