Exercise for children: Why keeping kids physically fit is good for the brain and helpful in class


The benefits of exercise for children are not limited to physical health and wellness, but include cognitive development and focus as well. Research has shown that exercise boosts levels of “brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a substance essential for the growth of brain cells”, stimulates the birth of new neurons and enhances the ability of the brain to change its neural pathway (i.e. learn).

Recent research including randomized, controlled experiments, show that exercise can increase memory, improve attention, and help resist distractions. This was true in experiments conducted immediately following exercise (e.g. post-recess) as well as longer term exercise regimens.  Experiments also showed improvement in Math, Reading and Spelling tests after following an exercise program.


Interested in experiencing the benefits of exercise for your child while they have fun, learn new skills and socialize with other kids? Bell City CrossFit’s 8-week CrossFit PreSchool and School-Age program enrollment is now open! Spring sessions run from March 21-May 16, every Saturday morning!
