A new study from Sweden has found a link between a person’s fitness as a teenager and their risk of heart attack in later life.

In a study of nearly 750,000 men, they found that the more aerobically fit men were in late adolescence, the less likely they were to have a heart attack 30 or 40 years later.

However, fit but overweight or obese men had a significantly higher risk of a heart attack than unfit, lean men.

If you're struggling to get your teenager exercising, talk to one of our physios or our exercise physiologist for advice.

Happy New Year everyone! Thanks for making 2013 an incredible year for Hurstville Physio Plus.
