New Study Links Exercise and Grades
There’s good news for student athletes, or for students who want to get more active. According to a new study presented at the American College of Sports Medicine’s annual meeting, there’s a link between college students who engage in regular exercise and higher academic performance.
Researchers at Saginaw State University tracked the grades and exercise habits of more than 250 undergraduate students and found that those who did vigorous exercise regularly had higher GPAs on average, regardless of major or study times. In fact, researchers also looked at study times and found that there may be a link between those who study regularly, which suggests that those with a high academic work ethic are more likely to commit to exercise.
So there you go! Now is the perfect time to get more active in both athletics and academics. Both go hand in hand to deliver a better lifestyle, not to mention, improve your overall level of wellness.
