CrossFit is one of the most popular fitness trends out there right now. Even if you don’t participate in the program yourself, chances are you know someone who does. CrossFitters are easy to identify, not only because of their usually shredded physiques, but also because they tend to toss around terms like “WOD” (workout of the day),“MetCon” (metabolic conditioning) and “AMRAP” (as many rounds/reps as possible) when discussing their workouts.

Many fitness novices ‒ and perhaps even some folks at the intermediate level ‒ find it difficult to determine how intensely they should perform their cardiovascular exercises. They wonder if it's better to walk, run, or pedal as fast as they can for as long as they can (which typically results in a very short workout) or if they should go at a slower pace that can be sustained for a much longer duration.

It is important that proper nutrition and exercise are introduced early into a child’s life, not only for their current well-being but because early habits set a child up for success or struggle as an adult. But there’s another reason why kids should get up and moving — fitness can affect mental capacity.
