Premier Study Reveals Only 10% Of Children Are Active Enough!

Premier Sport recently published new research alarmingly revealing that only 10% of children are doing physical activity every day, with over 25% of parents believing their child is not doing enough physical activity, and 60% are worried about obesity levels in their children.

Furthermore, 85% of parents believe that their children would benefit from more education around fitness, and 50% of parents agree that children should be properly fitness tested in schools.

Olympic gold medallist and Premier Sport ambassador, Duncan Goodhew MBE, said: “It doesn’t seem right that we regularly measure numeracy and literacy skills in school children but we don’t regularly measure something that could potentially kill them! This has to change if we’re to curb the alarming rates of inactivity in our children.”

Addressing the concerns of the nation’s parents and their suggestion that the need for physical activity can begin at school, Premier Sport and ukactive joined forces to launch the ‘My Personal Best’ initiative, comprising of four fitness measures throughout the school year, with the aim of identifying periods when children become most inactive.
